Loren Collingwood: Campaigning in a Racially Diversifying American: Whether and How Cross-Racial Electoral Mobilization Works

This is a past event

As the voting public continues to diversify across the United States, political candidates, and particularly white candidates, increasingly recognize the importance of making appeals to voters of different racial/ethnic backgrounds. In Campaigning in a Racially Diversifying America, Dr. Collingwood develops a theory of Cross-Racial Electoral Mobilization (CRM) to explain why, when, and how candidates of one race or ethnicity act to mobilize voters of another race or ethnicity. Specifically, Dr. Collingwood examines how and when white candidates mobilize Latino voters, and why some candidates are more successful than others.


Dr. Loren Collingwood is an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Riverside. His research interests include American politics, political behavior, race and ethnic politics, immigration, and political methodology. He is the co-author of “Sanctuary Cities: The Politics of Refuge” (2019) and author of “Campaigning in a Racially Diversifying America: When and How Cross-Racial Electoral Mobilization Works” (2020), both with Oxford University Press.
