Nerds and Geeks: A New Update on an Old Idea

April 7, 2021
7:00 pm


Rutland Free Library

American anti-intellectualism has a long and colorful history, but the triumph of Silicon Valley laid these prejudices to rest…or did it? The last ten years have seen a renewal of old anti-intellectual tropes in the form of anti-nerd and geek stereotypes. Professor of psychology David Anderegg explores whether we really love nerds and geeks now.

David Anderegg is emeritus professor of psychology at Bennington College, and the author of two books on children, Worried All the Time and Nerds.
