In what can only be called a piece of ecological terrorism, I am going to Singapore for a day to attend a conference on the status of Rumours. I will spend more time travelling than talking and part of me thinks this is very bad for the planet.

I’ll post details about the conference, the paper and suchlike tomorrow, when I’ve managed to convince myself that the desecration of the planet is a worthy price to pay for my paper on the epistemology of Rumours.

About Matthew Dentith

Author of "The Philosophy of Conspiracy Theories" (Palgrave Macmillan), Matthew Dentith wrote his PhD on epistemic issues surrounding belief in conspiracy theories. He is a frequent media commentator on the weird and the wonderful, both locally and internationally. On occasion he can be caught dreaming about wax lions but, mostly, it is rumoured he works for elements of the New World Order.


  1. Do you get an invite to a conference on Rumours or just hear about it through the grapevine?
