Yvonne Eadon


Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Center For Information, Technology, and Public Life, University of North Carolina

Dr. Eadon (she/her) obtained her MLIS and PhD in Information Studies from UCLA. Her dissertation, titled “‘They Are the Conspiracy Theorists, Not I:’ Mapping the Research Selves of Counter-Establishment Researchers,” explored the research practices of people who research alternative or counter-establishment topics, often characterized as “conspiracy theories.” Current areas of research extend this work. Conceptualizing conspiracy theorizing as a form of knowledge production, she investigates feminized conspiracy theories and the gender dynamics within online communities that form around them, as well as how information institutions interface with and assist alternative or counter-establishment researchers.
