Midterms 2022: a reflection of 2020 and current crises, or prelude to 2024?

Please note this event is now being held online.
You can join via Teams here.

All are invited to this in-person panel event featuring academic expertise from Kingston University.

This November sees the US return to the polls for the first national set of elections since President Donald Trump was defeated, and the January 6th Attack on the Capitol that followed the 2020 election. What impact these prior events will have is much debated.

At present the US faces multiple concurrent crises, including inflation, gun violence, climate change, polarisation, and the COVID-19 pandemic may well return as a driver of politics and division in the forthcoming winter.

Finally, and looking forward, the 2022 midterms could be read as a prelude to the 2024 Presidential Election.

On the eve of the 2022 midterms, come and gain insight and analysis from Kingston University experts on the event and what the results may mean moving forward.

The panel portion of this event will be recorded and released as a podcast episode. The Q&A portion will not be recorded.
