Infodemic: Combatting COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories

Marc Tuters – UKRI Open Call, Ideas to address Covid-19 (lead: University of Manchester) | Responding to the World Health Organisation’s warning that misinformation related to COVID-19 constitutes an “infodemic,” this project studies conspiracy theories as a particularly seductive kind of misinformation.

Infodemic: Combatting COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories is using methods from digital humanities and cultural studies to understand how and why conspiracy narratives circulate in different platforms and online spaces during the crisis.
