Dealing with Extremism – Darwin Lecture Series
February 3 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
The Talk “Dealing with Extremism” is held by Professor David Runciman, University of Cambridge. In his talk, he will cover how many extremist ideologies rely heavily on conspiracy theories to explain how the world works and where power lies. This lecture explores what our understanding of conspiracy theories – where they come from, how they work, who believes in them – can tell us about dealing with extremism.

The Darwin College Lectures take place on Fridays during Lent term (January to March). The lectures are given at 5.30 p.m. in The Lady Mitchell Hall, Sidgwick Avenue, with an adjacent overflow theatre with live TV coverage. Each lecture is typically attended by 600 people so you must arrive early to ensure a place.
