Watch “Conspiracy Theories in France and Italy” talk by Dr Pascal Girard (Reims)
Dr Pascal Girard (Reims) speaks about ‘Conspiracy Theories in France and Italy during the Cold War and Decolonization’. Dr Girard’s talk explores how in the late forties and in the fifties, conspiracy was a significant concern in French and Italian politics.
Dr Girard describes how the “red scare” greatly varied depending on the period, the political affiliation or the country; and the main long-lasting conspiracy theory actually concerned the threat of the far-right and, to a certain extent, of the government itself.
