I have published the article ‘Network of Experts in the Processes of Identity Formation within Contemporary Societies‘ [in Spanish] in the journal Política y Sociedad.

Abstract: In this article, I explore how the expert knowledge participates in the construction of identities in contemporary societies. After alluding to social figures such as the (pre)modern intellectual, along with other contemporary actors, I describe a social context that is marked by the political rationalities of advanced liberalism, ethico-politics and an emerging expert culture. From there, three consequences can be drawn: first, the most important agent of knowledge in contemporary societies is collective, the network of experts; second, those networks of experts have a great capability to transform reality thanks to being widely disseminated throughout society; third, the network of experts acts as a dispositif that produces social realities.
