HIST 226 History of Rome (Summer 2015,UNC-Chapel Hill). This course covered the origins of Rome to the first two centuries CE. Topics included Rome’s growth as a world power, the shift from republican government to autocracy, and the contested continuing use of Roman imagery, terminology, and memory in modern settings. As part of the course, students groups contributed to the Pleiades Project.

 

HNRS 353.002 Introduction To Social Network Analysis and Conspiracy Theories (Fall 2016, UNC-Chapel Hill)

This course introduces social networks, network modeling, and critically engages the literature and history of conspiracy theory. We investigated six conspiracy theories as a means to explore network analysis concepts. By the end of this course, students were able to construct an interactive network graph, perform basic network analysis, and presented their findings in a web application, hosted on GitHub. In addition, students familiarized themselves with the social and political implications of conspiracy theories, along with their historical veracity.
