Food for Thought: Midterm election debrief


John Ciorciari, Jenna Bednar, Earl Lewis, and John Chamberlin

Date & time

Nov 9, 2022, 11:30 am-1:00 pm EST


Weill Hall, Annenberg Auditorium (1120)
735 S. State St., Ann Arbor

To accommodate election day, the November installment of the Ford School's new "Food for Thought" series will be held on Wednesday, November 9. John Ciorciari, Jenna Bednar, Earl Lewis, and John Chamberlin will facilitate a conversation to debrief the midterm election with our community. What results were surprising, and which were expected? How did key ballot proposals fare, in Michigan and elsewhere? What trends are apparent in voter turnout and voting choices? Are any results still uncertain, and has the integrity of any elections been challenged? Last but not least, what are some possible implications of the election results for key aspects of U.S. domestic and foreign policy?

Food for thought attendance is limited to Ford School students, faculty, and staff. Pizza will be provided on a first-come first-serve basis. 

About "Food for Thought"

Roughly once a month, we will convene community conversations to devour pizza and discuss burning issues in policy and politics. These off-the-record conversations will aim to foster frank and open dialogue among Ford students, faculty, and staff. Each session will feature one or more Ford professors or scholars with relevant expertise, but these will not be lectures. They will be guided conversations in which we share both comments and questions, listen and learn from one another, and seek to co-produce knowledge on policy issues in the United States and around the world. Please come to learn more and to share your ideas.
