Russell Muirhead is the Robert Clements Professor of Democracy and Politics at Dartmouth College. He is the author of A Lot of People Are Saying: The New Conspiracism and the Assault on Democracy (Princeton 2020), which charts the way power-seekers marshal conspiratorial fabrications to elevate themselves and at the same time degrade democratic institutions. Muirhead has also written books on party polarization in American politics (The Promise of Party, 2014), and the moral meaning of work in democracy (Just Work, 2004). He is an veteran moderator of Aspen seminars. Before Dartmouth, Muirhead taught at Harvard, Williams College, and the University of Texas at Austin.
