Inspired by The New York Times Modern Love, which includes a weekly column, a book, a podcast and film series — about relationships, feelings, betrayals and revelations, the Conference on World Affairs (CWA) human condition program committee shares University of Colorado student stories of modern love through a series of performances and a virtual discussion during the 2021 CWA week (April 5-11).

All essays were all authored by University of Colorado students and were performed and recorded by University of Colorado Theatre & Dance students. Each day of the conference CWA will share a new performance via the CWA YouTube channel. The series will conclude with a facilitated virtual discussion between select authors and long-time CWA speaker, CU alumnus, author and social scientist, Ty Tashiro to discuss the challenges, triumphs and shared experiences of their stories.
