Now through the 2020 conference, CU Boulder seniors Annie Miller and Lindsey Visscher will lead the CWA student committee as the Student Volunteer Coordinators (SVCs), overseeing the group as they invite speakers, assemble panels and assist with other year-round CWA events.
University of Redlands English Professor Priya Jha was invited to contribute to a number of panels—on topics from gender politics to cinema—at the 2019 CWA. Jha discusses the highlights of the conference and how they will influence her teaching.
Next year's CWA week is scheduled for April 6-10, 2020, its traditional timing two weeks after the University spring break. Over a year ago, the CWA Board began exploring options to shift the 2020 conference dates so that they would not overlap with religious holidays, as has happened with prior CWA events. However, the CWA Board concluded that it was not possible to change next year's dates due to the lack of availability of crucial campus venues for the event.
