The Evolution of Sci-Fi Fandom

November 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

In the past, sci-fi media has catered to white males. Fandom is evolving to be more diverse, but, as seen in recent Twitter harassment of Star Wars actors and controversy at the Hugo awards, not everyone reacts well to change. Our panel of experts will discuss how we got here and where we are going.

PANEL
Leah Leach, Gal’s Guide to the Galaxy
Maurice Broaddus, fantasy and horror author
Michelle Mussoni, cosplayer
moderated by Lisa Meece, CEO Starbase Indy

PRESENTED BY
Starbase Indy, Gal’s Guide to the Galaxy, Center For Inquiry Indiana, Indy Youth Group
