C2E2 2018 Schedule

Next weekend will mark my seventh C2E2 (the only year I missed was 2011), and I only (ha!) have four panels this year, so hopefully I’ll have more time to wander Artists’ Alley and catch up with friends.

My C2E2 2018 schedule: Friday 4/6 It's Ok to Not Like Things, 4/7 Yellowface, Whitewashing, and Window Dressing, and Exploring Gender through Comics, Sunday 4/8 It's Ok to Not Like Things Family Edition

CNSC Presents It’s Ok to Not Like Things, Friday, April 6, 11:30am-12:30pm, Cards Against Humanity Comedy Stage
A celebration of differing opinions in a judgment-free zone. Confess your nerd sins and find peace with the friendliest nerds in town.

Yellowface, Whitewashing, and Set Dressing: Asian Americans in Geek Culture, Saturday, April 7, 12:15-1:15pm, S405b
What do Iron Fist and Doctor Strange share in common? Why is Firefly a problematic favorite? Join a panel of notable Asian-American writers, academics, and performers for a discussion on representation in pop culture, the effect it has on creators and fans, and what we can do to change the media landscape so that diversity is a reality rather than a buzzword. We’ll talk about how we’re working to change the stories we tell and what geekdom as a whole can do to encourage more diverse media. With Mary Anne Mohanraj, Mark Martell, Michi Trota, Wesley Sun, Dawn Xiana Moon

Understanding Gender Through Art, Saturday, April 7, 4-5pm, S405b
At the forefront of modern social debate is the nature of gender identity and how we move forward culturally with new understanding of the diversity within. Many graphic novels address this debate by providing fictional and non-fictional representations exploring how both identity and gender have evolved. This panel will explore how this discussion can enter into the classroom and which texts could be vital in crystallizing an understanding of this complex topic. With Dr. Katie Monnin, Jennie Wood, Shieka Lugtu, Michi Trota, Jill Gerber, Danielle Minet
