Conspiratorial Thinking in the Age of COVID (Mary Winspear Centre)

Part of: Digital Reactionaries (Mary Winspear Centre)

Course description

Over the past two years, our social media networks have become filled with strange claims: that Bill Gates is micro-chipping us through our COVID vaccines; that 5G cell towers are spreading the virus; that COVID itself is a hoax and our responses to it are the first steps towards a fascist dictatorship. These claims have little evidence to support them, but they’ve grown increasingly popular in recent months. How do some of us come to believe such wild claims? What do conspiracy theories such as these have in common? How can we identify them when we encounter them?
