The Meaning of the Midterms: Who Counted?  Who Voted?

The Meaning of the Midterms: Who Counted? Who Voted?

Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University

Knafel Center, 10 Garden Street, Cambridge MA

 The year 2018 will be remembered for its surge in women’s candidacies. Whether through individual, high-profile victories or the sheer force of hundreds upon hundreds of women standing for office, the midterm electoral cycle reflected options at the local, state, and national levels that were starkly different from any that Americans have confronted before at the ballot box. This panel will offer an analysis of the election results through a diverse set of perspectives—academic, experiential, gendered, generational, geographic, and political—to enhance our understanding of the roles and results for women, people of color, immigrants, and other historically underrepresented groups.
