Sylvain Delouvée

My research topics are focused on collective beliefs and social thought. I am particularly interested in behaviours and conduct known as irrational through conspiracy theories and rumours, collective memory and social representations, collective fears and social identity, common sense and lay knowledge.

I regularly carry out and lead lectures and training courses on conspiracy theories, rumours, critical thinking, collective fears, stereotypes and prejudices, social networks, etc. I also participate in action research and expert missions. Please contact me for any request.
