HNRS 353, Fall 2016

This course introduced social networks, network modeling, and critically engaged the literature and history of conspiracy theories.

After proposing a conspiracy (real or imaginary) for study, the students produced a traditional class paper, then used Gephi in conjunction with the Sigmajs Exporter to create interactive networks of their research. The students then uploaded the results to individual GitHub pages. The results are collected here – I hope you enjoy the student projects and recognize the hard work and effort put in to their realization! N.B. – When browsing student networks, be sure to click on the “More about this visualisation” link to learn more about individual projects.
