Dr. James Keating's First-Year Seminar students discussed diverse artistic, historical, and philosophical works while concurrently developing digital humanities projects. Most students entered this first-year course without subject matter expertise but nevertheless created interesting, innovative, and ambitious projects, relating to conspiracy theories. The students worked in small groups to explore various conspiracy theories, the history behind them, and the psychology surrounding the belief in such theories, and to develop the technological skills necessary to present their topic in visually appealing and accessible ways. The gallery below highlights these projects.
