Food for thought: Midterm elections


Abdul El-Sayed, Rusty Hills

Date & time

Sep 13, 2022, 11:30 am-1:00 pm EDT


Weill Hall, Annenberg Auditorium (1120)

The first event in the Ford School's new "Food for thought" series will feature Abdul El-Sayed and Rusty Hills for a conversation on midterm elections. What do we know about the factors that tend to help or hurt incumbent and opposition parties in midterm elections? What trends are apparent in the lead-up to midterms here in the United States? And how can members of our community engage to promote a healthy electoral process?

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.
