Historians on the 2018 Midterm Elections
November 8, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
National media have widely described the upcoming midterm elections as “historic.” Historians can provide unique perspectives on the outcome of these elections informed by a deep understanding of American political history.
On Thursday, November 8, at 12 p.m. EST, join the American Historical Association as we bring together five prominent historians who study elections, democracy, and politics to discuss the meaning and implications of the midterm election outcomes.
Historians Heather Cox Richardson, John Lawrence, Claire Potter, Tyler Stovall, and Julian Zelizer will react to the results of the midterm elections and engage in a conversational roundtable to delve into American electoral politics, keeping a firm eye on the past and using a historical perspective to think about what the future holds.
