Annual Meeting

We are happy to announce the first annual meeting sponsored by the Polarization Research Lab on March 2-3, 2023, hosted at the Hoover Institution. We will bring together established scholars, graduate students, community groups and funders for a conference designed to highlight emerging academic work and to develop a network of academics and practitioners focused on the problem of partisan animosity.  

The meeting will present innovative work on polarization, democratic/social norms, and political violence (all broadly defined).

The goals of the meeting are to:

  • Share the best work on partisan animosity with the best researchers in the field.
  • Build connections between established faculty and graduate students.
  • Connect researchers working on designs to attenuate affective polarization, reduce support for political violence and rebuild democratic norms with practitioners who can implement designs at scale.

For all domestic attendees (PhD students, faculty, practitioners) we will cover:

  • Airfare (domestic economy)
  • Hotel accommodation
  • Meals during the meeting

Applications for the 2023 Annual Meeting are closed.
