Anna Sampaio, author of Terrorizing Latina/o Immigrants will be featured in a two-day symposium at Ohio State University on the “The New American Electorate Beyond the Voting Booth: Building an Inclusive Democracy” to be held November 30th-December 1st 2017. A book signing will take place after the Opening Symposium Keynote Discussion & Book Signing Event on November 30th from 3:30-6:00pm.
This symposium will bring together scholars and practitioners from across the country to focus on how the new American electorate sustains its civic engagement with particular attention to moving these critical actors from voters to candidates for elective office. This timely symposium offers an opportunity to build and enhance scholarship on democratic citizenship by engaging the complex challenges to expanding civic engagement and democratic inclusion. Their premise is that while voting is an important expression of political voice, it is not fully sufficient for full democratic inclusion.
