Why do people believe in conspiracy theories?

Join us for a conversation exploring the endearing appeal of conspiracy theories and what this attraction tells us about ourselves and society.


Once they were a fringe interest, now conspiracy theories seem to hit the headlines every year – from QAnon to Flat Earthers. Why are they more popular, and is this dangerous?

This event runs the gauntlet through the scary world of conspiracy theories – their psychology, history, and philosophy. Find out the best ways to talk to believers and what conspiracies tell us about society today and ourselves.

We’re delighted to welcome world-leading thinkers on the topic

This event is free, but booking is essential. Come along to make questions and comments and join the conversation – or just sit and listen!
