Conspiracy and Democracy: History, Political Theory and the Internet

23 November 2018

SG1 and SG2, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge

This event will be the final showcase of work undertaken during the five-year Leverhulme Trust-funded project Conspiracy and Democracy. Led by Professor Sir Richard Evans, Professor John Naughton, and Professor David Runciman, this project asked big questions of a big topic at a time when discourses around conspiracy and democracy have become mainstream. This event will highlight some of the answers to these questions, explore trends in contemporary conspiracy theories, and launch the results of a new poll conducted by YouGov.  Bringing together researchers who have worked on the Conspiracy and Democracy project, the event will showcase research findings and outputs while giving an opportunity for discussion and exploring next steps. 

More details will follow soon.
