How can we explain the popularity of conspiracy theories? Cécile Rousseau, Full Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at McGill University and associate member of the UNESCO-PREV Chair, will give a lecture on the social tensions generated by conspiracy theories and will propose an in-depth reflection on the phenomenon as part of the “Le monde d’aujourd’hui” conferences. 

Professor David Morin, co-holder of the Chair, will lead and comment the lecture.  Please note that the lecture will be given in French.
