RSRis Anastasiya Astapova: “Conspiracy Theories and Populism”

The Society of International Relations (RSR) invites everyone to a public lecture on conspiracy theories and populism. Have you ever wanted to know more about conspiracy theories? Have you ever wondered how conspiracy theories can be connected to populism? If so, we invite you to spend your Tuesday evening with us!

Our guest will be Anastasiya Astapova – a folklore researcher at the University of Tartu and a member of the Estonian Young Academy of Sciences. She has two doctoral degrees: one from the University of Tartu and another from the Russian Academy of Sciences. Her post-doctoral research was done at the University of Uppsala.

She is also taking part of a research and development project “Folkloristic view of belonging and non-belonging in Estonia”. From 2015 she has been a member of the steering committee on a project “Comparative analysis of conspiracy theories”.

NB! The lecture will be held in English!

The lecture series of RSR is supported by Tartu Kultuurkapital.
