Making Sense of the 118th Congress: What’s Happened and What to Expect

APSA’s public webinar series brings political science experts together to discuss breaking news and current events from unique disciplinary perspectives. On January 25, 2022, “Making Sense of the 118th Congress,” asked Congressional politics scholars to reflect on the dynamics of the 2022 midterm elections, the tumultuous House Speaker vote, the first few weeks of the new term, and the key areas to watch over the next two years.

APSA staff thanks our live audience for joining and asking thoughtful questions. We also thank our panelists for participating.
