H 306 WEIRD IS WONDERFUL: RESEARCH HIGH STRANGENESS TO CHALLENGE ACADEMIC STEREOTYPES

HON-H 306: Weird is Wonderful: Research High Strangeness to Challenge Academic Stereotypes

Ghosts. Poltergeists. ESP. Spiritualism. Cryptozoology. Little Green Men. Did you know that these topics (and more) have been scientifically investigated by serious scholars and researchers throughout the years? Or perhaps that Duke University once had a research lab dedicated entirely to the study of extrasensory perception? In this class, you will discover that the ‘weird’ can be a wonderful thing to research! Students will choose a topic that many consider to be on the ‘fringe’ of accepted reason – this could include parapsychology, ghosts/hauntings, ufology, cryptozoology and much more. The summer semester will be spent researching these topics through a critical and rigorous academic lens, resulting in a research paper that not only challenges the notion of accepted science but which will also challenge the stereotypes surrounding what it means to be an academic. Additionally, we will deconstruct issues surrounding acceptable research and ‘fringe topics’ and how these things can find their places within academia. The weird can be wonderfully intellectual; register to see how.
