2019 Citrin Conference

Gender and Politics on the Eve of 2020

The Citrin Conference is an annual event of the Citrin Center for Public Opinion Research, which is housed within the Charles and Louise Travers Department of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley. The Conference invites leading scholars and practitioners to present their research and discuss a pressing topic in politics and public policy, emphasizing the role of public opinion. The 2018 conference addressed trust in government and the rise of populism in the age of Trump. In 2019, we focus on gender and politics, a particularly salient topic in a year where a historic number of women are running for president.
