      Fellow Jane Coaston “Conservatism’s Youth Movement – Why Conservatism Has Worked Hard to Appeal to Young Audiences & the Tools They’ve Used to Do So” (Students Only)

      One of the biggest challenges facing conservatives is that young Americans don’t tend to vote for conservatives – and aren’t inclined to start. But movement conservatism has been laser focused on that problem, by promoting young conservatives in the media and arguing that conservatism is the “punk rock” response to the ‘excesses’ of liberalism. In this seminar, we’ll talk about the youth vote and how conservatives have gotten it wrong (and right). This seminar is part of IOP Pritzker Fellow Jane Coaston's series, “American Conservatism, Considered (and Reconsidered)." This seminar is open to students only and off the record. Registration is required. However, seating is limited on a first come, first serve basis; capacity in the IOP Living Room is 45. Doors will open 30 minutes before the event begins. Any unclaimed seats will be released 10 minutes before the event begins. Please arrive early to claim your seat. If you can no longer attend, please cancel your ticket order on Eventbrite so others may register. This venue is physically accessible and has gender-neutral restrooms. Please contact the Institute of Politics at politics@uchicago.edu or 773-834-4671 with any questions or accommodation requests.
