The Miller Center’s Democracy and Governance Studies Program sponsors conferences, panels and the GAGE Colloquia Series on Politics and History to engage the academic community in contemporary political history. Democracy and Governance Studies brings in a broad range of distinguished speakers to present their research, receive feedback, discuss contemporary domestic and foreign political history, and contribute to the growing literature on American Political Development.
The GAGE Colloquia Series provides an open forum for scholars to share their works-in-progress and exchange ideas about politics, history and current affairs. Each speaker’s paper will be posted online one week prior to his or her scheduled colloquium. Lunch will be served starting at 12:30 pm, and paper presentation and discussion will run until 2:00 pm. All colloquia are free and open to the general public.
Our events are held in the Forum Room at the Miller Center, located at 2201 Old Ivy Road. For directions to the Center, see our map. Parking is available on the premises at no charge. Please RSVP by emailing if you plan to attend a Democracy and Governance event.
