HSU and community partners launched a new lecture series during the last year featuring HSU educators sharing some of their favorite material in the community. All talks took place at the Plaza Grill View Room, and all of them attracted standing-room only crowds of community members, students, and HSU faculty and staff.

Each of the six talks was recorded and aired later on KHSU. They are available on the KHSU website, along additional notes and material, and can also be downloaded through iTunes and other podcast apps. Special thanks to all those who gave a lecture: CD Hoyle on “The Undiscovered Universe,” Ben Marschke on "Witches: Sex & Science in the 16th Century," Julia Alderson on “Looting & Destruction - The Politics of Art in Crisis,” Rich Boone on "Climate Change: Facts, Fiction, & Forecasts,” Melinda Meyers on "That's So Gay?" and Marisol Cortes-Rincon on “Maya Warfare.”

The series was created by Marketing & Communications. It was inspired by a lecture series previously held on campus, and advice for getting the series started came from Ben Marschke and Michael Goodman. It was sponsored by Arcata Main Street and KHSU, with additional support from a variety of Arcata eateries.
