Equal Opportunity Conspiracy Theories?
Following their visit last term talking about their forthcoming book on American Conspiracy Theories, Joe Parent and Joe Uscinski wrote a piece for the CRASSH blog on the pitfalls and the benefits of collaborative writing.
And so saying, we’ve put together a short piece for the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage political science blog, discussing their claim that conspiracy theories are found more or less equally on both left and right (at least in the USA). And within a matter of hours we got some pushback on the vexed question of how exactly we define and identify conspiracy theories. We’ve discussed this and related questions on our blog before, here, here, here and here. The discussion will surely continue.
