White Identity Politics Reconsidered

Fri, November 12, 9:00 to 10:30am EST (9:00 to 10:30am EST), Virtual

Session Submission Type: Panel


In recent years, political scientists have devoted considerable attention to the role of white racial identity in American politics. In contrast to prior studies, which found that white racial identity was relatively weak and politically inconsequential, recent studies have highlighted its significance in electoral politics, especially in explaining Donald Trump's 2016 victory and persistent popularity among Republicans even after losing the 2020 election. Papers on this panel further the study of the role of white identity in explaining politics in the current era.
