A public lecture with Ute Caumanns (University of Düsseldorf)
The lecture considers the relevance of visuality and visual sources in conspiracy theory research. It argues that conspiracy theories are meant to be disseminated amongst a given public. To achieve this, they are communicated not only through written texts, but also with the help of speech and visualization. It is open to question, whether graphic images and visual representation can contribute to a chronological classification of conspiracy theory including pre-modern history.

Interdisciplinary, cross-cultural research on local, national, or international subjects is welcome.
