 10:00 AMLiteratureScience Fiction vs. Fantasy: Who Prospers?KeweenawTed Chiang once postulated that the difference between science fiction and fantasy is who has access to the impossibility. Does a knowable universe whose laws anyone can learn, and everyone has to work within, offer a more egalitarian vision than a world of destiny and fate? Or is it difficult to imagine even a science fictional world in which the future is evenly distributed?Douglas Hulick, Bradley P. Beaulieu (M), Elise Kova, Ann Leckie, Kentaro Toyama
 10:00 AMLiteratureWhose Subgenre Is It, Anyway?Ballroom A&BOne hat is filled with titles of well known novels. The other hat is filled SFF's favorite sub-genres.

Can Middle Grade explain the glut of dystopias in Young Adult?Jenny Thurman, Courtney Allison Moulton, Merrie Haskell (M), Susan Dennard, Gwenda Bond
 10:00 AMComicsAcceptable Bodies in ComicsInterlochenBody shape and type are always contentious topics. In comics, discussions about them are primarily related to gender and sexualized presentations vs. power fantasy, but comics are also known for a reliance on using disabled, fat, queer, trans bodies as a shorthand negative character traits.

 10:00 AMLiteratureThe Fiction of Political SFFLeelanauMost "political" science fiction doesn't really deal with politics, it deals with the setting out of ideologies. In other words, it tells stories that have little to do with running a government. The result is a debate of ideas where the political is described by greed and corruption, but never the merely bureaucratic. Why are these tropes recycled time and again? How can politics be approached in a more authentic way and remain interesting to readers?Kameron Hurley, Patrick Tomlinson, Justin Landon (M), Amal El-Mohtar, Max Gladstone

 5:00 PMLiteratureVigilante Justice in Urban FantasyManitouThe Urban Fantasy genre is built, in many ways, around glorifying extra-judicial violence. In this way, they might have more in common with the Western than the modern crime novel.

Underwood (M), Delilah S. Dawson, Jeannie Szarama, Melissa F. Olson
 5:00 PMLiteratureGenerations of GenreIsle RoyaleFor one reader, "traditional fantasy" is pre-Tolkienian, pre-genre, sui-generis works; for another, it's Forgotten Realms and David Eddings. Equally, for one reader The Hunger Games is a young adult dystopia, while for another it's science fiction. Can the evolution of such terms be mapped onto changing demographics -- is there such a thing as GenX fantasy, or Baby Boomer science fiction? And do any terms retain their currency, and describe common ground across generations?Laura Resnick, Steve Buchheit, Lynne M. Thomas, Max Gladstone (M), Stina Leicht

 5:00 PMLiteratureStandards of Beauty in Made-up WorldsInterlochenWestern concepts of attractiveness do not reflect the gamut of human experience, both in history and today.
