About me

Adam Koper – PhD researcher studying the politics of conspiracy theories

I’m Adam, a PhD student in Politics at the University of York – welcome to my blog! My research is focused on the politics of conspiracy theories – how they come about, why they can be appealing to many people, and what political views they express. My other research interests include Frankfurt School critical theory, new readings of Marx, and the history of political ideas.

My intention in this blog is to write about some of the themes from research, and to share my thoughts on political theory more generally. All views expressed here are my own.
