Conference Ends with Music and High Praise

Don Grusin, Dave Grusin and Oscar Castro-Neves talk about and perform music of Brazil on one of the final panels of the 2010 Conference on World Affairs. Check out the Daily Camera’s Coverage of the entire event, which includes interviews, coverage of panels and plenaries, video, photos and letters to the editor.

Yes, but what distinguished the 2010 conference?

Perhaps, student participation according to Michelle Albert, whose media class WRTG 3020 spent an entire semester working on making CU students more aware of the conference and its opportunities. Was it successful? When Barbara Ibrahim, a conference participant on panel #4462, asked those under age 25 to stand, half the audience stood. The Program for Writing and Rhetoric provided a $300 budget and Albert’s class partnered with CU’s ATLAS Media Lab to produce posters, blog interviews, Twitter and Facebook updates, video, etc in an effort for students to reach students with up-to-date info on CWA.
