Conspiracy theories in Eastern European popular culture

Many classic conspiracy theories concern the withholding of information from the public. In Central and Eastern Europe, however, suspicion is more commonly aimed at outside influences. Thanks to an ERC Starting Grant, Boris Noordenbos (Slavic Studies, Literary and Cultural Analysis) will spend the next few years researching how conspiracy theories in Eastern Europe are given shape in cultural expressions such as literature, film, television and online platforms.

Dr. Niall Martin:

'Cultural Analysis is an interdisciplinary programme dedicated to the academic study of contemporary culture from a broad Humanities perspective. It trains students in the theoretically-informed close-reading of a wide range of cultural objects, including film, music, literature, visual art and new media, but also cultural phenomena, such as populism, precarity and posthumanism.'
