The free event (donations suggested) will take place on Thursday, October 28, at 2 p.m. in the University Theatre on FAU s Boca Raton campus, 777 Glades Road.
Prize-winning historian Robert Goldberg investigates the role of conspiracy theories in modern American politics. In addition to the 9/11 conspiracy theories, he looks at five major conspiracy theories of the past half-century, including the Roswell UFO incident, the Communist threat, the rise of the Antichrist, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the Jewish plot against black America. Goldberg contends that conspiracy theories are not merely the products of a lunatic fringe. Rather, paranoid rhetoric and thinking are disturbingly central in America today. For more information, call 561-297-3840.
