This project aims to carry on the work of the “Big Questions Online” publication (BQO), bringing before a wide public audience informative and accessible discussions by leading scholars who are working to address the Big Questions. In part, the project will involve commissioning, editing, publishing, and publicizing original essays — continuing the publication model BQO has pursued for several years. However, with this project, we intend also to experiment with new and innovative ways to extend the mission of BQO beyond the current “one author, one question, one essay” model, by publishing other kinds of major content on the site and by beginning to publish more regular minor content as well.
