Are you among the 50 percent of Americans who believe in a conspiracy theory?
Do you always look at the world through a lens of perfect logic and reason? Do you follow your gut? Join the Museum of Science and Industry and political scientist Eric Oliver, Ph.D., as we explore how close we all are to believing in a conspiracy theory.
Discover Eric Oliver’s research into what feels like a rising tide of conspiratorial thinking and its impact on misinformation, science and society. Participate in informal experiments as you ask yourself some of the same questions that Oliver used in his studies on conspiratorial thinking and see how your answers compare to others. Discuss the ways everyone thinks like a conspiracy theorist and what we can do stop the spread of misinformation in an open forum.
Doors open at 6 p.m.
