The transfer of conspirational messages
This is a brand new project in colaboration with Alessandro Miani and Sławomir Wacewicz.
The project is about how a potentially conspiratorial message “evolves” when passed from actor to actor depending on whether the actor is high or low in conspiratorial thinking. In other words, if a person is already inclined to believe in conspiracy theories, how might that influence the way they interpret and pass on a potentially conspiratorial message? And conversely, if a person is less likely to believe in conspiracy theories, how might that impact the message as it’s passed on?
The details are still being enthusiastically discussed, so that’s all I am willing to share for now. Stay tuned for more soon!
