Dialogue on Dawson: 25 Years of Linked Fate and the Politics of Group Identity

Saturday, August 31, 4–5:30 pm


A diverse group of panelists will build on the work of Michael C. Dawson in a roundtable discussion of the theory of linked fate, 25 years after it was proposed in Dawson’s groundbreaking book Behind the Mule: Race and Class in African American Politics (1994). Participating scholars will discuss the ways in which Behind the Mule continues to be instrumental to the discipline of political science and the social sciences more broadly, as well as its limitations to our understanding of group identity.

Each of the eight panel participants also contributed, with co-authors, to the August 2019 issue of the journal Politics, Groups, and Identities (PGI), in a special section entitled “Dialogues: Linked Fate and the Politics of Groups and Identities.” PGI’s “Dialogues” will feature seven short essays, as well as a reflection and look forward by Michael Dawson himself. While Dawson emphasized perceptions of linked fate for African Americans, for nearly 25 years his theory has gained enormous prominence and, in particular, is used to examine a wide range of political behaviors and public opinions for Blacks, Latinos, Asian Americans, and Whites.

Each essay will incorporate data from the pioneering 2016 Collaborative Multiracial Post-Election Survey (CMPS). The 2016 CMPS was the first cooperative, multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, post-election online survey in race, ethnicity and politics in the United States. The survey includes large and generalizable samples of Blacks, Latinos, Asian and Pacific Islanders, and Whites which allow for both the analysis of an individual racial group and comparative analysis across groups. The new measures in the 2016 CMPS relating to linked fate within and across racial/ethnic groups and other identity types raise questions about our conceptualizations of linked fate, and the extent to which linked fate works the same way for different communities.

The guest editors of PGI’s special section on linked fate are Lorrie Frasure-Yokley, Natalie Masuoka, and Matt Barreto, all from UCLA. They have organized this APSA roundtable in collaboration with the PGI lead editors, Nadia Brown and Valeria Sinclair-Chapman, and the APSA Diversity and Inclusion Programs.
