Redistricting and American Democracy

Sep 28, 2021 - Sep 29, 2021


Registration and Program

The next decennial redistricting cycle, which is already underway in North Carolina and other states, will have profound implications for the course of our nation over the next decade. Redistricting and American Democracy will be a timely opportunity for scholars, practitioners, and advocates to take stock of the current legal and political landscape, preview the upcoming redistricting process in North Carolina and elsewhere, and discuss the path forward for redistricting reforms. It will also be an opportunity for Duke students and the broader public to learn about how redistricting will impact them–and what they can do about it.

Redistricting and American Democracy is a two-day hybrid event cosponsored by Polis: Center for Politics at the Sanford School of Public Policy and the Duke Department of Mathematics. The conference will take place on Tuesday, September 28 and Wednesday, September 29 on the Duke University campus, with additional speakers and participants joining virtually from across the country. The keynote address on September 28 and three-afternoon sessions on September 29 will be offered in-person for individuals with a Duke ID, so we appreciate your help spreading the word among interested students, faculty, and staff. All conference events, including the in-person sessions, will also be streamed virtually to the broader public.

This conference is funded through the generous support of Diana and Todd Stiefel. Polis: Center for Politics and Duke Math also thank the following co-sponsors: the Duke University School of Law, the Center for Computational Thinking, the Hart Leadership Program, the Rhodes Information Initiative, and the North Carolina Scholars Strategy Network.
