First off, I’m doing much better with this break, and I’ll be back in full force next month! And speaking of next month, I’ll be presenting panels at Connecticon 2019 in Hartford, Connecticut July 12-14. This will be my last time presenting at a fan convention–after this, I’m retiring.
But I’m going out with a bang! Here’s my schedule (subject to change if Connecticon moves things around):
- Fullmetal Alchemy: The Real-World Alchemical Tradition and FMA: 10:30-11:30 AM in Riverside 2
- Anime Doesn’t Exist and Trek is for Girls: Fandom Secret Histories: 1:30-2:30 PM in Cityside 4
- Break the World’s Shell: Apocalypse and Anime: 4-5 PM in Cityside 1
- The Answer and the Question: The Radical Aesthetics of Steven Universe: 7-8 PM in Cityside 3
- Queering the Monster: Sympathetic Others in Fantasy and Horror: 2:30-3:30 PM in Cityside 1
- Lesbians, Flowers, and Free Will: The Anime of Kunihiko Ikuhara: (with the von Hoffmans and Judith & Natalie) 4-5 PM in Riverside 1
- My Little Pony: A History of Gen 4: (with Viga) 5:30-6:30 PM in Riverside 1
- The Duel Named Revolution: Making Sense of Revolutionary Girl Utena: 7-8 PM in Riverside 1
- The Near Apocalypse of ’09: Trauma, Heroism, and Apocalypse in the DCAU: 10-11 AM in Cityside 1
- The (Surprisingly) Good Place: How a Network Sitcom Became the Best SFF on TV: (with Viga) 12-1 PM in Cityside 4
- Lost in Transmission: A History of Accidentally Transgender Narratives: (with Katriel Paige) 1:30-2:30 PM in Riverside 2
For those who’ve seen my panels before: Fullmetal Alchemy is unchanged, Fandom Secret Histories is about 2/3 new content, Break the World’s Shell is updated, The Answer and the Question is redone from scratch, Queering the Monster is new, my portion of the Ikuhara panel is content I cut from both panel and book version of Duel Named Revolution, My Little Pony is new, Duel Named Revolution is unchanged, NA09 is heavily revised, Surprisingly Good Place is new, Lost in Transmission is new, and my intent is to record all of these and post them slowly over the next year.
Also: now you know why I came this close to total burnout this month, heh. ^_^;
