The Evolution of Sci-Fi Fandom | Spirit & Place

The Evolution of Sci-Fi Fandom | Spirit & Place

Sun, Nov 10, 2019 2:00 PM – Sun, Nov 10, 2019 3:30 PM The Evolution of Sci-Fi Fandom | Spirit & Place

Where: Center for Inquiry | Indiana (CFI) Center for Inquiry | Indiana (CFI) 350 Canal Walk, Ste A Indianapolis, Indiana 46202

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
Miranda Montooth, Starbase Indy staff organizer and advocate
moderated by Lisa Meece, CEO Starbase Indy

PRESENTED BY

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