Friday, 4 pm. The Laboratory.

“Harvey Dent for President” – How do science fiction and fantasy media comment on current political situation? Panelists discuss how these genres can be used as a powerful medium to talk about cultural issues. [Rosen, Gould, Sarath*,  Blaschke]

Uh oh. I think I’ll need to do some homework. Although I will definitely bring up “Macs.”

Saturday, 5 pm. The Laboratory

All the Sci Fi Ladies” – Our panelists discuss strong women characters and women writers in science fiction and fantasy literature. How were women portrayed in the past? Has that changed any with modern literature? [Fletcher, Sarath*, Rosen, Datlow, Bowers, Montz, Wells, Mixon]

Funny, I’m moderating something very similar in London at Eastercon.

“By the Gods!” – Religions: mythological, fictional and historical. Do your characters need to believe in a higher power? What other belief systems have writers come up with or how have they done without. [L. Donahue*, Bas, White, Sarath, Leicht, Wells]

This should be fun and it dovetails nicely with the new work in progress.

I’m looking forward to my very first AggieCon.
