Conspiracy Theories in U.S. History
Credit Hours:

This course will study the history of conspiracy theories in the United States, from the anti-Catholicism of the Puritans to "QAnon." Its aim will not only be to catalog and describe prominent theories, but also to (1) understand why certain Americans accepted conspiracy theories as valid explanations of political, economic, and social change, and (2) to use conspiracy theories as a lens to understand more legitimate social, economic, and political conflicts.
