Chryl Laird

Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and the Law, Identity and Culture Intiative Presents "Gender, Race, and the Election"

A conversation with Chryl N. Laird, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Bowdoin College, and co-author of Steadfact Democrats: How Social Forces Shape Black Political Behavior.

In this conversation, we will explore how varied group expectations shape voting behavior. We shall also explore how disaggregating "group" identity helps us understand voter self-interest. How are "identity politics"--white nationalism, divergent gender politics, and Black Lives Matter-- playing a role in this election? 

Co-sponsored by the Departments of African and African American Studies, Political Science and American Culture Studies.
