Whilst psychologists are learning more about who endorses conspiracy theories, and why, little is known about their potential consequences.
Initially, some people thought conspiracy theories were ridiculous beliefs that are simply harmless fun.
In this talk, however, Daniel will present his current research programme where this assumption is being turned on its head.
The aim of this talk is to ultimately highlight some of the potentially damaging consequences of conspiracy theories.
Please see the programme tab for more information.
