Science fiction and fantasy have longed served as a way to couch deeper social, political and cultural meanings. Moderator Francesca Lyn and panelists Emma Ríos (Island), Carolyn Nowak (Diana’s Electric Tongue), Aminder Dhaliwal (Woman World), and Fiona Smyth (Somnambulance) will discuss how they use various genre tropes to explore topics related to feminism like a world without men, the implications of having a robot boyfriend, mystical searches in surreal environments and much more.
