Conspiracy Studies: A Journalistic Approach to Modern History


With Steven Saint Thomas, Journalist

Modern history is clouded by numerous high-profile events where people suspect that the government is hiding the truth from the public. The term “conspiracy theory” has come to connote -- usually in a derogatory way -- the belief in a historical narrative that departs of conventional notions of what happened. This course combines historical research methods with investigative journalism techniques to study the validity of various conspiracy theories. Students will research and write a source-based article on one of these so-called conspiracies.
