Hello! My name is Peter Forberg. I’m a PhD student in sociology at UC Berkeley. I study technology, political movements, governance, and ethnography. I run the QAnon Research Network Newsletter and have published work in the Journal of Contemporary Ethnography, American Behavioral Scientist, and Frontiers in Sociology. I am always open to collaboration, cold emails, and questions.
