What is conspiratorial thinking?
What is the relationship between conspiratorial thinking and religion?
Do conspiracy theories lead to violence?
If these questions pique your interest, then join us for a Cathedral Chat on…
We will be joined by Dr. Maxwell Kennel (PhD, McMaster University), a postdoctoral researcher in the Department for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto. Max is currently working on a project called “Critique of Conspiracism.”
His work has been published in both academic and popular journals, and his recent book, Postsecular History: Political Theology and the Politics of Time, is published by Palgrave Macmillan.
Max will be talking with us about his research, which deals with the relationship between conspiratorial thinking, religion, and violence.
If you’ve been startled or confused by the rise of conspiratorial thinking in today’s culture, you will be sure to find this conversation interesting and illuminating!
This conversation will be held in-person at the Cathedral (252 James St. N) at 7:00pm on Wednesday December 8, but it will also be livestreamed and broadcast on our YouTube channel.
Mask and proof of vaccination will be required for our in-person attendees. Social distancing protocols will be observed.
