Conspiracy theories and fake news have created a modern information crisis. LUMA is an educational initiative that seeks to combat this recent wave of misinformation by examining the historical roots and origins of conspiracy theories and the psychological factors that drive so many people to believe them. The project's components include an in-depth publication and infographic poster series covering conspiracy theories from the Middle Ages up to the present day.
