The KCL Institute of North American Studies and the UCL Institute of the Americas are delighted to announce their first collaboration, featuring post-election commentary by: Professor Philip Davies (Director, British Library Eccles Centre on North American Studies), Dr Clodagh Harrington (De Montfort University), Dr Tom Packer (Oxford University) and Dr Tim Stanley (Telegraph Media). The speakers will also answer questions from the audience.

The outcome of the 2014 US midterm elections will do much to shape the final years of the Obama presidency and will have implications for the 2016 presidential and congressional elections. The results will likely suggest answers to a number of key questions: are the Republicans on the rise; are the Democrats in decline; and will the current political polarization intensify in the next two years?
