During the week of April 7 - 11, I'll be participating in an amazing conference, officially called Conference of World Affairs, informally dubbed the "Conference of Everything Conceivable." It's sponsored by Colorado University at Boulder. If you or your friends will be in Boulder, come to some of the sessions/parties/events and say hi. All sessions are free and open to the public!
I'll be speaking on these panels:
Publishing a Book: Tales from the Trenches
Too Busy To Fall In Love
Why Young Voters Care Again
Feminism: The New F Word
Why We Write
The Power of Facebook
Things We Wish We'd Learned in College: A List Slam
This will be the second year that I participate. It's an amazing community-intellectual event--super-stimulating and fun. All the events are free so if you happen to live nearby, or want to take an intellectual vacation, come join us.
Here's how the CWA describes itself:
"The Conference on World Affairs was founded in 1948, originally as a forum on international affairs. CWA expanded rapidly to encompass the arts, media, science, diplomacy, technology, environment, spirituality, politics, business, medicine, human rights, and so on. Roger Ebert, who holds a record of thirty-seven consecutive years of participation in the CWA, refers to the event as “the Conference on Everything Conceivable.”
