Diversity Works: Finding Purpose in the Past: Racial Group Norms and Political Participation in the United States

Allison Anoll
Tuesday, October 13, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:15pm
Facilitated Remotely via Zoom

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED

Join our Diversity Works discussion with Allison Anoll, assistant professor of Political Science at Vanderbilt University.

Racial groups in the United States vote at significantly different rates, on average, and in ways unexplained by resources or nativity status.  Allison Anoll uses interviews, surveys, and a series of experiments to show that beliefs about one’s ancestors shape voter turnout in America. When coupled with politics, the honoring ancestors norm helps to explain why some minority groups can overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to participate in politics and how others might be mobilized in the future.

Join the virtual session at 12:00PM on Tues., Oct 13 via Zoom. A Zoom link will be emailed to you once you register for the session.
