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 call for papers which includes details of the proposed conference format can be found here.
