Unraveling Conspiracies

Exploring the Shadows

A widely published scholar and former FBI consultant, Michael Barkun, Ph.D., is one of the prestigious historians who will speak at the 4th International Conference on Freemasonry at UCLA: Secrets Revealed! Freemasonry and the Conspiracy Theories It Evokes.

The conference will be held March 21 at UCLA and via a live webcast. Register today.

Barkun, professor emeritus of political science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University, is known as one of the world’s leading experts on contemporary conspiracy theories. In 2013, the University of California published his book – “A Culture of Conspiracy: Apocalyptic Visions in Contemporary America” – a compelling exploration of society’s fascination with conspiracies across a broad range of topics, from UFOs and aliens to the Kennedy assassination, Nostradamus, and Freemasonry.

His session at the conference is titled, “Freemasonry in the Context of Contemporary Conspiracy Theories,” and will provide an intriguing perspective of how today’s culture fuels public misperceptions of the fraternity.
