Conference on World Affairs
CU Boulder’s annual Conference on World Affairs turns 70 in April. Founded in 1948 as a way to exchange ideas on central issues of our time, the five-day extravaganza gathers scores of movers and shakers from all quarters for spirited discussions about the state of the world. Nuclear security, artificial intelligence and climate change will get a hearing this year, among dozens of other topics. And if the past is a guide, the lighter side of society will surface, too: Selfies, zombies, video games and Tinder have all had their moment in the sun.
