Precis: Academic study of popular culture is now widespread. What makes a genre work suitable for academic study? (Consider Whoosh, the journal of the International Association of Xena Studies. Or Slayage, the Online International Journal of Buffy Studies. Smart Pop Press has been publishing anthologies of essays on everything from Stargate to Star Wars, but they’re not alone. Robert Chaires and Bradley Chilton, authors of Star Trek: Visions of Law and Justice from Texas A&M University Press, have declared “To say that Star Trek was just a television show is akin to saying Shakespeare just wrote plays.” Also, the Popular Culture Association studies the rhetoric of pop culture.)
Panel 2: Sat 10/19 4:00 PM, 60 minutes.
Title: Can’t Stop the Signal: Communications Tech
Participants: Kim Hutsell
Dani Kollin(M)
Larry Niven
Sherri Rabinowitz
Eric Rand
Precis: While it’s rarely the focus of the story, the plot device of getting word from point A to point B (sometimes through hostile territory, or in a way that doesn’t expose more Bothans to death than absolutely necessary) is frequently an essential aspect of the narrative. What kind of features–or limitations–are assumed by authors when the plot needs a signal to get through (or fail to do so)?
Panel 3: Sat 10/19 6:00 PM, 60 minutes.
Title: Dreams of Space Lost
Participants: Sherri Rabinowitz
Gary Westfahl
Gerry Williams
Janine Young
Precis: Going to the moon was once fantasy, then reality, then history… and is now sliding into legend, as it looks like we may never go back. Science fictional dreams of colonizing other worlds are looking more like fantasy as we face the incredibly difficult and expensive problems of protecting fragile meat bodies from vacuum and radiation. Our machines may go where we cannot, but how can we handle the loss of our dreams?
Panel 4: Sun 10/20 12 Noon, 60 minutes.
Title: Turning Fandom Into Fame
Participants: Brian Bielawski
Eben Brooks
Sue Dawe
Neal Hallford
Sherri Rabinowitz
Precis: When someone asks “What was your inspiration for your art?” you don’t always expect the answer “Geek Love!” But in this era where anyone with a blog can become just as powerful as the mainstream press, and anyone with a YouTube channel can be a celebrity, finding your audience can be as simple as “liking” the Star Wars page on Facebook. This panel seeks to look at this phenomenon, where geek obsession fuels, inspires, and enables artistic creation.new banner for my book (2)
