Do you geek out about a good conspiracy theory? If so, celebrate Geek Week with the Inclusive Excellence Center and the Union Cinema by joining us for film screenings and discussions of Netflix’s Conspiracies. We will feature three different episodes that tackle well-known conspiracy theories. Following each episode, we will host a short discussion in which participants can dive deeper and share their thoughts with fellow conspiracy theorists! Come to one or come to all—students may choose to attend any of the film screenings. Participation is first come first served and is limited to XX for each screening.
