Attending Swancon for Easter

posted in: News | 0

I’m going to be at Swancon over Easter, and am on several panels, as well as giving an academic presentation. You can see my schedule below:

 

Friday 7.30pm – Fans and substance (ab)use:
Where’s the line between our right to hack our bodies to meet our needs, and everyone else’s right to not have a messed up person to deal with? How much can we optimise our body chemistry, with the available tech? These, and other exciting questions will be tackled. Ask us about hangover management, too.

Friday 8.30pm – Romance Panel: It’s Going to Get Weird Edition:
John, Lulu and I get stuck into the odder end of erotica. Are you sure that’s anatomically possible?

Saturday noon –┬áVisualising Gender Fluidity:
Will Knox and I demonstrate the visual tool we built for our work on the Murdoch Uni Ally program, and talk about how we built it.

Monday noon: Is Spy-fic Speculative fic?:
In which I reveal I know a lot about Modesty Blaise.

Monday 2pm: Big Weather:
Predicting a Future Climate: How do SF authors write about climate change?
