Questions that Matter is a public humanities series developed by UCSC and the community of Santa Cruz. It put scholars in conversation with community members and students to explore questions that matter to everyone. The series is a part of a strategic initiative of the IHR to champion the role and value of the humanities in contemporary life. The series is designed as a lecture and conversation, with a substantial focus on participation, questions and answers.
The Institute for Humanities Research will be in partnership with Bookshop Santa Cruz, the Santa Cruz Public Libraries, and the Kuumbwa Jazz Center to produce this series.
