GGC ‘13 Programming Schedule for Saturday, October 19
Star Trek creates a utopian vision of the future, but do the traditional groups still come out ahead? How was violence against women depicted? Would anything have been different if there had been regular gay characters? What would a more feminist Trek universe look like and how is that being created in fandom? We will discuss whether the Star Trek universe is a feminist utopia, or if there’s still a lot of work to be done.
Join me, Mary Czerwinski of DVD Geeks and Glue Guns and Phasers, Tanya from Geekquality, and moderator Jamala Henderson of KUOW to talk Trek and Feminism on Saturday, October 19th at Geek Girl Con in Seattle!
Are you coming to GeekGirlCon? Our Managing Editor will be on a panel talking Star Trek, on Saturday October 19 at 6:30PM. The goal of the panel is to try and cover as much as possible in 50 minutes: favorite female characters, problematic story arcs, intersectionality. Also, stay tuned for a post with our recommendations for panels to check out at GeekGirlCon (Oct 19-20).
