« back to classes page
One of the most important developments in the production of history in the early twenty-first century has been the capacity of ‘weird history’ or ‘pseudo history’ to have a large impact on the public sphere. Pseudo history mimics professional history in the way that it presents itself to the public but its arguments defy any reasonable assessment of the evidence. In this class, we examine the phenomenon of pseudo history and its challenge to historiography the foundation of traditional history. We also look at its effective use of new media, especially the internet to further confuse the public on what is fact and what is belief.
