Event description

Description

Conspiracy theory has always been with us, but today it is taking dangerous new forms that threaten democracy. “The new conspiracism” assaults common sense, increases political extremism, and, especially when condoned by elected officials, becomes a malignant force in American life. Nancy L. Rosenblum, who is Senator Joseph Clark Professor of Ethics in Politics and Government emerita at Harvard University, addresses this crisis, drawing on ideas in her book A Lot of People Are Saying: The New Conspiracism and the Assault on Democracy.


Presented with the Center for the Humanities. Part of the series “The Promise and Perils of Democracy.”
