Fri 9:30pm Beyond Binaries 101: Exploring Gender Roles
1hr 15min — Adams (3W)
 How do science fiction, fantasy, and horror explore beyond our existing gender roles? How often do we see authors fall back on traditional gender roles or just flipping gender roles? Or how often do we do it ourselves? Who has created unique roles separate from gender or dealing with gender beyond binaries? What would we like to see? Steve Berman, Greer Gilman, Adam Nakama, Suzanne Reynolds-Alpert, Trisha Wooldridge (m)

Fri 11:00pm The Big Fear: Genre Fiction as Social Commentary
1hr 15min — Revere (2)
What does the threat or conflict implicit in a work of fiction say about the society that made it? In the 1940s, books like George Orwell's "1984" and George Stewart's "Earth Abides" are examples of fears of a totalitarian dystopia and the end of civilization respectively. John Brunner's "Stand on Zanzibar" is an example of the fear of overpopulation present in many works of 1970s fiction. What are the cultural bogeymen of today? What will the big fear be 20, 50, 100 years from now? Carl Danielson, Suzanne Reynolds-Alpert, Sarah Smith, Mark Waks (m)

Sat 2:00pm Fantastic Women
1hr 15min — Paine (2)
Once we mature past the (male) adolescent fantasy of women, modern fantasy provides us with complex heroines. We'll talk about the touchstone women of fantasy, our current favorite fantastic women, and how society's changing view of women in general both drive the creation of these characters and is influenced by them. Adrianne Brennan, Genevieve Iseult Eldredge (m), Sheila M. Oranch, Suzanne Reynolds-Alpert, Margaret Ronald, Vandana Singh

Sat 8:00pm The Heroine's Journey
1hr 15min — Burroughs (3E)
If one takes a classic hero's journey plot and changes the gender of the character, how does the story shift and change? Are there differences we can see in literature between stories told with women and girls as their protagonist, and the ones told about boys and men? Ellen Kushner, Suzanne Reynolds-Alpert, Nisi Shawl (m), Delia Sherman, Sarah Smith

Sun 11:00am What Women Want (in Their SF/F Females)
1hr 15min — Adams (3W)
Many panels discuss what women's roles in SF/F are and ought to be, but what do female readers really want to see? How do women feel about "token" female friends in works like Harry Potter or Percy Jackson? How do we feel about re-imagining heroines like Alice, Arwen, and Maid Marion who are willing to pick up weapons and fight to achieve their destiny? Female readers, writers, and other SF/F creators will "let it all hang out" in this spirited panel! Vonnie Carts-Powell, Vikki Ciaffone (m), Genevieve Iseult Eldredge, Suzanne Reynolds-Alpert, Trisha Wooldridge
