Conspiracy Theories in the Middle East and US

13-15 January 2011, Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies, Germany

Call for: papers

We invite contributions that focus on any aspect of conspiracy theories related to either the Middle East or the United States. We are interested in papers that explore the comparative and transregional dimension of this topic. Conspiracy theories flourish in highly diverse environments and answer to vastly different human needs, desires, and imaginations. Focusing on two regions, the United States and the Middle East, the conference adopts a comparative approach to the study of conspiracy theories.
