Beyond belief

Jovan Byford

Since the resurgence of public interest in conspiracy theories in the 1990s, there has been a flurry of studies looking at this phenomenon from a social psychological perspective. Much of this research has focused on identifying specific social and psychological factors that underpin the susceptibility of individuals to conspiracist thinking, and which might therefore help to explain the persistence of conspiracy theories in modern society. In this talk, Jovan Byford offers a methodological critique of this growing body of work.
