On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, we continue a series of lectures on topics in economic sociology, recorded in the fall of 2020 and hosted by Peter Boettke. He is joined in this episode by Kristen Collins as they discuss her research at the intersection of intellectual history and democratic theory. As the pair unpacks the theme of "being seen" in a democratic society, they examine how this project takes shape in the work of thinkers from the Enlightenment. They also develop the theme in light of modern shifts in technology as well as social and political developments during the COVID pandemic. In closing, Kristen offers advice on how to integrate research from both economic and political theory perspectives.
