March 18 – 21, I will be attending the 41st International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts (aka ICFA). I’ve heard nothing but good things about the conference, and I’m looking forward to finally experiencing it for myself. This year’s theme is Climate Change and the Anthropocene, which promises to be a rich and fascinating topic. I’m moderating one panel:
Ripped from the Headlines: Using Speculative Fiction to Address Contemporary Issues
Saturday, March 21, 2020 from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. in Vista B
Panelists: Akbar Shahzad, Erin Roberts, Agnes Gomillion, Nick Wolven, Erica L. Satifka, A.C. Wise (M)
Other than that, I plan on taking in the conference, attending other panels and readings, and spending time with friends. If you see me around, please say hi! The full schedule for the conference can be found here. Given the wide range of topics and presentations, and the smart people delivering them, I look forward to learning new things!
