The summer school will provide an introductory overview, through lectures offered by worldclass experts, on strategies to analyze, decode, and debunk some of the forms of political use of denialism and conspiracy theories.
An interdisciplinary perspective will be adopted, including political theory, political philosophy, history, and political science, in order to offer a wide-ranging analysis of the phenomena being considered.
The summer school is open to anyone interested in the topic, from undergraduate students, PhD students and post doc to journalists and policymakers. In selecting applications, however, preference will be given to doctoral students and post doc, particularly from the area of political science.
The training objectives are to offer analytical tools that will first and foremost enable the interpretation and decoding of the processes by which denialism and conspiracy theories are used in political terms in order to gain consensus.
The summer school offers 32 hours of classes spread over 5 days. It will take place at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa. Lectures and seminars activities are provided with face-to-face lectures in order to co-involve participants in the production of papers and presentations. The main preparatory texts will be provided preliminarily.
A final assessment test is foreseen at the penultimate day Summer School.
