Winston Berg


I am a postdoctoral Teaching Fellow in the Social Sciences at the University of Chicago. I specialize in American politics and political theory, with a focus on theoretical questions of relevance for the empirical study of public opinion. I am particularly interested in questions related to conspiracy theories, misinformation, and the institutional underpinnings of political knowledge systems.

My research has been supported by the Center for Effective Government at the Harris School as well as APSA's Ideas, Knowledge and Politics Organized Section.

Prior to starting my PhD, I earned an MA in the Committee on International Relations at the University of Chicago, where I held a fellowship in my second year, and a BA in International Relations from the Elliott School of International Affairs at the George Washington University.
