Scholars across the US have taken up the study of US Vice President Kamala Harris' time in office.

Established in early 2021, 'The Kamala Harris Project' is an academic consortium of scholars in US politics, history, and public policy who will study the term of the United States’ first woman vice president, according to the Emory University press release.

"Major areas of analysis include media coverage of Harris, her policy leadership within the Biden administration, the influence of her electoral success on girls and women as potential candidates for office, and the international impact of a woman of colour holding such a high-profile executive position in the United State," read Ohio's College of Arts and Sciences press release.
