Experimental Grad Seminar on Conspiracy/Theory

Instructor(s): Joseph P. Masco
Fall 2016

In 2016-17, the Conspiracy/Theory Project included a fall 2016 graduate seminar developed by Joe Masco (3CT) and Joseph Dumit at University of California-Davis.  The class explored the development of conspiracy as a term, the practices of critical theory and paranoid reading styles, and addressed shifts in the mass mediation of politics across finance, energy, war, and the environment.  Classes were taught simultaneously in Wilder House at the University of Chicago and University of California-Davis, with the classes interacting virtually both online and in the classroom.
