Agency, Consent, and Power in Science Fiction and Fantasy
Saturday, June 22, 2019 – 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Location: Washington Convention Center, 146B
Science Fiction and Fantasy has always held a mirror up to nature and continues to explore themes that resonate in contemporary society. As our current culture grapples with issues such as sexual assault, bodily autonomy, classism, racism, and consolidation of power, both political and economic, science fiction and fantasy writers have been responding with works that illuminate our current situation. Join a panel of popular genre authors talking about how their work is informed by and informs discussion on the topics of agency, consent, and power in the real world and in the worlds of their own creation. This year's panel and their recent works is scheduled to include:
- Sarah Gailey* - Magic for Liars
- Malka Older - State Tectonics
- John Scalzi - The Consuming Fire
- Martha Wells - Exit Strategy
* Note that Tor Books has agreed to waive its library embargo on Sarah Gailey’s title, Magic for Liars. We thank Tor for working with us to make this ebook available for licensing on the date of publication.
