Design Thesis Publication

For centuries, conspiracy theories have helped people make sense of the world, especially during times of instability. The past decade has witnessed a concerning rise in the spread of fake news and conspiracy theories, largely driven by social media platforms. My thesis project aimed to provide a more informed perspective on our current information crisis, by examining the historical roots and origins of conspiracy theories, and the psychological factors that drive them.

The publication is composed of four chapters, each exploring a different popular conspiracy topic: the Knights Templar, the Freemasons, the Illuminati and the Satanic Panic. Bound into the middle of the publication is a smaller booklet examining the psychology of conspiratorial belief.
