Daniel Halverson, Denisa Popa, and Andrew Jones publish Spontaneous Generations, v.10: The Revolt Against Expertise.

April 7, 2022 by Adriana Leviston

From climate change denial to vaccine hesitancy, creationism and fake news, attacks on expert authority are becoming increasingly strident - and effective. How did this happen, and what can be done about it? In the newest issue of Spontaneous Generations, IHPST's graduate student run journal, Daniel Halverson (editor), Andrew Jones, and Denisa Popa (associate editors) bring together historians, sociologists, philosophers, even a folklorist, to explore tensions inherent in the practice of expertise in a democratic society.
