The Big Hoax: Understanding the Conspiratorial Mind
October 22 at 5:30pm
Join a live recording of The Uncover Up podcast to explore conspiracy narratives with Humber College professors Nathan Radke and Dr. Lee Kuhnle. They will consider how the conspiratorial mind – unlike the stereotype of the paranoid loner – is actually a member of a community of minds, and will evaluate the concept of cognitive dissonance and the development of a new theory of the mind, “the superpositioned truth.” Fascinating listening.
This event is part of the annual interdisciplinary Humber Liberal Arts Conference. This year’s focus is The Big Hoax: The Anatomy of Anti-Intellectualism, Denialism and Conspiracy Theories, Past and Present. Tune in to plenary sessions, free and open to the public, October 22–23.
