Responses to Student Feedback - Conspiracy Theories (Peter Knight)

AMER 30381            Conspiracy Theories in American Culture

The feedback on this course was on the whole very positive, and there were few recommendations for changes. In particular the students commented favourably on the interesting range of intellectually stimulating topics that covered culture, history and politics.. The availability of all the course readings on Blackboard and a course blog were well received. Some students found that amount of reading in the early weeks excessive, particularly as there are many tricky concepts to get to grips with at the start of the course, and in future iterations of this course it will be possible to spread out the readings more. The last time this course was taught the students expressed concerns about the assessment being a single coursework essay, so this time round two pieces of assessment were set, and students valued this shift.
