HOTCUS 2020 Postgraduate and Early Career Virtual Conference: America At and Beyond the Ballot Box

Due to concerns over covid-19 our annual postgraduate and early career
conference will this year take the form of a one-day virtual event, taking
place on Friday 18 September 2020.

With the presidential election looming in November 2020, politics is
paramount in the minds of those interested in the United States. This year also marks a century since the Nineteenth Amendment to the American Constitution was ratified giving women the right to vote. The 2020 HOTCUS Postgraduate and Early Career conference provides a pertinent opportunity for emerging scholars to explore America at and beyond the ballot box.

Professor Iwan Morgan (UCL Institute of the Americas) will close the day
with a virtual keynote address.

The full programme is now available here.

There is no charge for the conference and you can register here.

On Thursday 17 September (the day before the conference) we are running a virtual postgraduate social event and quiz. This will give researchers the chance to meet HOTCUS’s postgraduate secretaries, Lizzie and Tim, and to socialise with each other ahead of the conference. This will be the first in a series of HOTCUS postgraduate community sessions. The event will take place between 15:00-16:30 via Zoom. Please register for the social event and quiz here.

The call for papers is now closed.
