The Great Replacement: Conspiracy, Fear, and Media
The Great Replacement is a dystopian, racist conspiracy theory that has been propagated for decades through dystopian novels. The conspiracy has become the mechanism through which hate ideologies are spread, both subtly and openly on social media, gaming, and through memes with real world consequences. The Great Replacement conspiracy theory has fueled acts of violence and a rise in extremism and populism across North America, including the recent killing of 13 people at a supermarket in Buffalo, NY. Dr. Carmen Celestini will give a historical overview of this conspiracy theory and share her research on its more recent manifestations, including through extremist groups in Texas.
