About the Conference

We invite you to join us for “The New American Electorate Beyond the Voting Booth: Building an Inclusive Democracy.”

This two- day symposium will foster an interdisciplinary dialogue on the growing diversity of the American electorate, and what is necessary to protect and extend democratic inclusion for women, men of color, millennials and new immigrants, those underrepresented groups comprising the new American electorate.

This two-day symposium will take place Thursday, November 30th through Friday, December 1st here on campus and will bring together scholars and practitioners from across the country to focus on how the new American electorate sustains and deepens its civic engagement with particular attention to moving these critical actors from sustained voters to candidates for elective office. This timely symposium offers an opportunity to build and enhance scholarship on democratic citizenship, civic engagement, democratic inclusion, and the overall health of our democracy.
