  HON-298F Honors Colloquium: Conspiracy Theories In American History
3 Credits
  An investigation into the roles that conspiracy theories play in American society and culture, and the place of these theories in the broader context of American history. The colloquium will examine competing explanations for the prevalence of conspiracy theories, and will explore well documented conspiracies (e.g., Watergate; Iran-Contra), as well as classic 'conspiracy theories' which have not been substantiated (e.g., the Kennedy assassination; the 9-11 'Truth Movement').
