What's less well-understood, though, is how conspiracy communities influence each other, and how different forms of suspicion have begun to merge together, due to impacts as disparate as social media and the COVID-19 pandemic. We'll discuss how conspiracy communities find and influence each other, and how they create new forms of meaning and suspicion that can shape public discourse.
