Since 2009, Julien Giry has been working on conspiracy theories mainly in the United States. After a monograph of the LaRouche Movement (2009–2010), he defended a dissertation in political science entitled “Conspiracism in American Politics and Popular Culture. A Sociopolitical Approach of Conspiracy Theories” at the University of Rennes 1 in 2014. He has also published a couple of papers and given several lectures and press interviews on conspiracy theories, urban legends, and rumors. He is also interested in the issue of conspiracy theories and the internet (more information can be found here).
By now, he conducts fieldwork studies on opponents to Muslim ritual slaughtering from a sociological point of view. According to some of them, its development must be a proof of the upcoming “Eurabia” or “Grand Substitution.”
