CONvergence 2019 is coming up soon. Will I see you there?
“Gender & AI” - Hyatt 2 Greenway CDE
5:00pm - 6:00pm
Androids & AI in sci-fi disrupt the idea of a gender binary: what purpose is there for an android and/or AI to have gender? Could an android/AI be trans, gender-fluid, and/or non-binary? How will that affect how we as a society see gender as a construct?
“Polyamory 101” - Hyatt 2 Northstar B
8:30pm - 9:30pm
Back by popular demand! Polyamory means “many loves;” but there are many ways to be polyamorous. Come discuss it and some ways to navigate it. This panel provides space for those new to/curious about polyamory.
“Making Geek Spaces Inclusive” - Hyatt 2 Greenway HI
11:00am - 12:00pm
How can we encourage a sense of inclusivity and community in your favorite geek spaces?
“Costuming and Cultural Appropriation” - Hyatt 4 Great Lakes A2
5:00pm - 6:00pm
Where is the line between respect for a culture and appropriation of a culture and who decides?
“Polyamory 202” - Hyatt 2 Northstar B
Friday, July 5 • 8:30pm - 9:30pm
Polyamory 202 is here! Did you attend Polyamory 101 and want to know more? Are you in a polyamorous relationship and wondering what other models look like? Are you interested in hearing about intersectionality in polyamory? Then this is the panel for you!
Do you have questions that you’d like me to try to bring up on panels? Do you have any thoughts or comments on the upcoming panels? Please let me know, and I’ll see if I can make it happen!
I hope to see you there!
If you can, please help me continue to get out to conventions and attend panels. Writing about each panel takes a lot of work, ranging from extensive note-taking and transcribing, to understanding the content of the panel, to analyzing the information, and there is maintaining this website and creating the content for ease of access. As little as $1/month will help me get into a position where I can prepare and create quality content for everyone. To this end, I am on Patreon, a membership platform service to help facilitate the relationship between patrons and creators.
I know that it's not always possible to sponsor someone on a monthly basis. If you would help me with a one time donation, please feel free to use PayPal, CashApp, or Vemno. Producing content takes time and effort, and any support would be most appreciated. Your donations help me cover expenses and eventually will let me be able to create quality content full-time.
