"I think that over the past few years, Americans have been feeling increasingly insecure about all sorts of things," historian Geraldo Cadava told The New Yorker's Political Scene podcast late last month. "You can chalk it up to the pandemic. You can chalk it up to climate change. Any number of things are making a lot of us anxious and insecure and that can be a destabilizing feeling." A Yale PhD who currently teaches at Northwestern, Cadava writes on the Latino experience in the United States.
