Questions That Matter: "Data and Democracy"

This event is sold out but please register here for our wait list. We will release any empty seats just before the event begins.

Technology increasingly shapes our habits and defines our access to information. As our society navigates shifting sources of news, targeted advertising, and polarizing online rhetoric, it is essential that we work to understand the complex and often obscured relationship between data and democracy. Join THI to explore how we got here and to imagine a more inclusive, open, and transparent future. Part of our conversation about Data and Democracy. More about our conversation on Data and Democracy.

Questions That Matter: A Series of Public Dialogues in Santa Cruz

A public humanities series developed by The Humanities Institute at UC Santa Cruz and the community of Santa Cruz - bringing together two or more UC Santa Cruz scholars with community residents and students to explore questions that matter to all of us. The series is a part of a strategic initiative of the Institute to champion the role and value of the humanities in contemporary life. At the University of California Santa Cruz, we understand that the humanities are a crucial element of any first-rate liberal arts education. Indeed, what distinguishes the best universities in the United States is the fact that the humanities are an integral part of their core curriculum, along with the arts and sciences. The series is designed as a lecture and conversation, with plenty of time built in for participant questions and answers. We invite you to join us on January 29, 2019 at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center for "Data and Democracy."

great event. Well facilitated, good panelists. Lots of interesting ideas. Could have used more discussion about policies and solutions, especially beyond the 'we should all be better informed as individuals and consumers'. What are reasonable regulatory possibilities? What are the politics of data regulation and control?
