Richard Dolan presents UFOs for the New Century - 2013 International UFO Congress
You might wonder, with all the dramatic, frightening, and fascinating things going on in our world today, are UFOs even relevant anymore? How should one even engage in UFO studies in the 21st century? For the last year, Richard Dolan has been focusing on these questions, and he has emerged with an understanding of the field that is appropriate for contemporary thinkers. This isn’t your grandfather’s ufology. To understand all that is related to UFOs, we need an updated concept of extraterrestrials, of conspiracies, of science, and even of research and investigation in an age of Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. The bottom line is that UFOs surely do matter, and it’s time to wield the conceptual tools with which to understand the subject. This will be a forward-looking lecture by Dolan, designed to open new vistas of understanding.
Richard Dolan has firmly established himself as a leading contemporary UFO scholar. In 2000, Dolan published UFOs and the National Security State: An Unclassified History, Volume 1: 1941-1973, a book that Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell called, “a thorough and monumental undertaking.” Dolan followed up in 2009 with a second installment titled, UFOs and the National Security State: The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991. In 2010, Dolan co-authored the book A.D. After Disclosure: The People’s Guide to Life After Contact with Hollywood producer and screenwriter Bryce Zabel. In addition to his works as an author, Dolan often speaks as an expert on the subject of UFOs.
