While the Conference on World Affairs hosts over 100 speakers and performers during one week in April, the CWA Speaker Series brings individual distinguished guests to campus, as a means of extending the cultural and intellectual environment of the CWA throughout the year. Formerly known as the CWA Athenaeum, the CWA Speaker Series was established in 1998, inspired by the tradition of an ancient Greek Athenaeum (for which it was originally named) where poets, philosophers, and orators gathered to read and discuss their work.
To kick off this academic year the CWA Speaker Series will host two upcoming talks on the CU Boulder campus, featuring Daniel Traub, NYC based Filmmaker & Photographer and Vice President of Data Strategy for Twitter, Chris Moody. Both events are free and open to students and the community.
Daniel Traub, will be hosted on campus on Thursday, October 27th at 6:30 p.m. in Old Main. The evening will include a discussion, audience Q&A, and a multimedia presentation diving into the story behind the work in the award-winning photography book: Little North Road: Africa in China. An in-depth interview about this project may be found here: http://roadsandkingdoms.com/2016/little-north-road-qa-with-daniel-traub/
