This is a four part series that explores various aspects of extremism in online spaces. Topics will include conspiratorial thinking, the Qanon conspiracy, the role of social networks in promoting these beliefs, and the importance of critical thinking to push back against these conspiracies.
Each of the sessions in this series builds upon the others, but each class is also a distinct stand-alone topic, so you may register for a single session or the entire series.
Note: The courses listed on this page take place online. We also are offering a face to face delivery format at the Mary Winspear Centre: Digital Reactionaries series (Mary Winspear Centre).
