The programme team for this year’s World Science Fiction Convention, to be held in Dublin, is now available through their website. I’m so excited to be participating in four events!
As it currently stands (which is always subject to any necessary last-minute changes dictated by the needs of the overall programme), my schedule is as follows; all sessions listed below are 50 minutes long:
Thursday, 15 August – 15:30 (3:30 pm)
Decolonising, Point Square: Odeon 6 (academic panel)
with Natalie Ingram and Professor Fiona Moore
I’ll be presenting my paper, ‘Questioning Mononormativity: Love, Sex, and Relationships on McDonald’s Luna’
Friday, 16 August – 09:00 (9:00 am)
Stroll with the Stars, CCD: Ground Floor Foyer
with Zen Cho, David D. Levine, Michelle Sagara, Kate Heartfield, and Paul Cornell
Sat., 1 August – 17:00 (5:00 pm)
Gender and the writer, CCD: Wicklow Room-1 (discussion panel)
with Dr Nick Hubble (Moderator), Dr. J.S. Fields Ph.D., Vanessa Rose Phin, and Jasmine Gower
Monday, 19 August – 11:00 (11:00 am)
Fairy tunes and ghostly croons, CCD: Wicklow Room-4 (discussion panel)
with Carol Connolly (Moderator), Marguerite Smith, and Daniel Kelly
I do not yet have schedules for London Science Fiction Research Community’s Productive Futures conference or Gesellschaft für Fantastikforschung’s annual conference yet, but I will update here when I have any information on those programs. I am sure the good folks in charge of those events are busy building some wonderful academic conferences for this year.
I hope to see some of you in Dublin, London, and / or Berlin this summer!
