In the article, HSOC associate professor Amit Prasad discusses the misinformation and conspiracies that have emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic. He argues that these conspiracies, although on the surface they seem anti-science, commonly utilize idealized constructs of science. By studying how these conspiracies are interpreted and spread, he shows, for example, that the same conspiracy was being interpreted differently by different social/racial groups.
