From bioweapons to 5G, many virus-related conspiracy theories have emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic. Join Assoc. Prof. David Black, from the School of Communication and Culture, for a webinar to discuss conspiracy theory, its appeal and effects, and how it has long existed in Western culture.

Attendees will explore the common features of these conspiracy theories, how to avoid their seductive power and how to cultivate critical thinking at a time when it is really needed.
