MONEY, SEX, AND CONSPIRACY THEORIES~Does a group of international bankers control America? Is Bill Gates the anti-Christ? Does a Powerful secret society, called the illuminati, actually exist? Is there more to the September 11th tragedy than was presented to the public? Is the CIA behind the illegal drug trade? Is hip hop intentionally linked to major public policy? What is actually behind the murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls? Questions....questions! Many believe that we are born into a world controlled by unseen forces that have plagued and manipulated humanity for thousands of years. This course will delve into conspiracism or the world view that centrally places conspiracy theories in the unfolding of both historical and contemporary events. From urban legends, sex scandals, terrorism, to hip hop, the course will take students on an investigative journey into the believable and unimaginable. With particular emphasis on media literacy, students will utilize critical analysis, critical thinking, and communication skills as they explore the unknown and perhaps even the unthinkable!
