Distrust in America

Tue 4/9/2024 • 1PM - 2:30PM PDT

Charles E. Young Research Library, Main Conference Room 11360


Twenty-first century American politics has been tumultuous. Common explanations for America’s societal and political divide and seeming inability to act collectively include changes in media technology, elite polarization, social and ideological sorting, nationalization of institutions and unprecedented tribal polarization. This project instead argues that the most concerning and consequential development has been a polarization around trust in scientific institutions. This has come about due to partisan realignment and resulted in two parties—who are charged with collaborating to produce collective goods—operating from entirely distinct epistemologies.

This talk will be held in person and via Zoom.

Light refreshments will be served.
