Event Description

Americans have always entertained conspiracy theories; they are as much a part of the American way as baseball and apple pie. That Americans believe such theories now is not unusual. What is different today is that people in power routinely and indiscriminately spread these theories, with a specific and very ambitious goal – the goal of destroying our faith in government, science, and any kind of community spirit. They encourage people to reject fact-based evidence in favor of partisan advantage. In this talk, UC Davis Professor of History Kathryn Olmsted will talk about the history of conspiracy theories in the United States, and examine how and why these theories have come to threaten American democracy.
