Acerca del Curso

This course is for anyone interested in conspiracy theories. Millions of people around the world believe in conspiracy theories like The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, or that AIDS was deliberately created by governments and pharmaceutical companies, or that on September 11, 2001, the World Trade Center complex was downed not by airplanes, but by a “controlled demolition” masterminded by the United States national security state. What are we to make of these claims? What do they say about our societies? How do they impact history, or reflect larger historical trends? How do we understand the context of these ideas? And how do we understand them in relation to objectively confirmed conspiracies, of which there are at least as many? How do we know when a conspiracy has really happened, and cannot simply be dismissed as a ‘theory’? We will grapple with these questions together through short videos, quizzes that will help you check your understanding of the material, discussion, and a final project in which you will create your own conspiracy theory....

Very interesting, fast-paced, light-hearted course! . The Professor and his videos were great, I highly recommend this course.

I didn't know anything about any conspiracy theories, until the pandemic changed everything. (Right now it's Jan 1, 2023, in the USA). Unfortunately, now it seems like a good idea to know some of the most prevalent and violent ones out there. :(

After taking this course, I'm not sure I feel better about the conspiracy theories circulating here in the USA! But I do strangely feel relieved that conspiracies have always attracted a certain audience, and have been around for a long time, and the world didn't end, so we might all be ok after all.

Peace, and hoping 2023 is better than 2022 for everyone!

Excellent content and presentation. Truly gifted professor. Would have given it 5 stars had he not been so liberal with his leftist views on the Palestinian issue

Did much to clarify the national ambiguity caused by these heroic and tragic passages.
