This course will examine the enduring appeal and growing influence of conspiracy theory in American political culture. We will examine key historical events and social issues in the history of our nation and the conspiracy theories they have spawned, as well as several prominent films and literary works inspired by paranoia. The objective of the course is neither to promote or debunk any particular theory, but to examine the formation and transmission of conspiracy theories and the role they play as modern mythologies—revealing less about historical truth than about the prejudices, ideologies, and anxieties of the people who believe them. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.
