LJST Seminar Series Presents "The New Conspiracism and Immunity to the Law"

On Thursday, Oct. 25, at 4:30 p.m. in Clark House Room 100 at Amherst College, Nancy Rosenblum, professor of ethics in politics and government at Harvard University, will present a paper titled “The New Conspiracism and Immunity to the Law.” This is the second presentation in a series of seminars that will take place this year on the theme “Law and Illiberalism.”

Professor Rosenblum’s field of research is historical and contemporary political thought. Her publications include Good Neighbors: The Democracy of Everyday Life in America (2016) and On the Side of the Angels: An Appreciation of Parties and Partisanship (2010). Professor Rosenblum is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Science and co-editor of the Annual Review of Political Science.

To receive a copy of the paper which will define the new conspiracism, identify its principal targets and survey how it delegitimates democratic institutions, please email the LJST Department Coordinator at mlestes@amherst.edu.
