Our annual Robert H Smith Lecture in American Democracy will once again be held in partnership with the LSE Department of Government. This year, the lecture will ask US Election Expert, Philip Davies, “will the 2022 mid-terms make any difference?”
Philip Davies is Chair of the American Politics Group of the Political Studies Association. He was formerly Director of the British Library’s Eccles Centre for American Studies, is Professor Emeritus at De Montfort University and a Distinguished Fellow at Oxford University’s Rothermere American Institute. He is the architect of the Congress to Campus UK programme that brings former US Members of Congress to meet UK audiences annually each November. He has published on many aspects of US elections and election campaigns and is the main sponsor of the Philip and Rosamund Davies US Elections Archive, housed at the Vere Harmsworth Library, Oxford.
The event is hosted by Pavi Suryanarayan, Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at LSE and moderated by Benjamin Franklin House Director, Márcia Balisciano.
