Conspiracy Theory as a Substitute for Social Critique: Peter Staudenmaier, NOV 17 2 PM (EST)

Wednesday, November 17 at 2 pm EST

Conspiracy theories have exploded in recent years, targeting COVID, vaccines, 9/11, George Soros, the Frankfurt School, and more. Conspiracy thinking has also become more prominent in left and in ecological movements, often under the guise of alternative health, counterculture, and simplified critiques of US foreign policy.

Join us for a live online presentation by historian and ISE faculty member Peter Staudenmaier, who will explain why conspiracy theories offer false analyses of the social problems we face and steer us towards non-emancipatory political solutions.
