Call for Submissions

I would like to organize a paper session devoted to electoral geography for the 2019 AAG meeting in Washington, DC. Topics devoted to elections, electoral districts, gerrymandering, and referendum elections are welcome. Papers can be quantitative and qualitative. I would like to focus on more current electoral events, but historical papers with relevance to current situations are encouraged. Elections in the United States and other countries will fine. Papers devoted to Donald Trump are welcome as are papers which explore the rise of populist and right-wing electoral movements. With so much happening in regards to electoral politics there is a wealth of research and interpretation available.
