The Worldcon programme is now available through the official website, at www.worldcon.fi. Here’s a run down of where you can find me over the weekend.
‘The Sandman’ [Messukeskus 206]
Meg MacDonald [M], Ruth EJ Booth, Tony Keen, Tomasz Kozłowski
“Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman comic started more than 25 years ago, but it is still being widely read. The panel discusses the reasons for Sandman’s enduring popularity.”
‘From Literature to Movies and Television – Adaptation of Scifi and Fantasy’ [Messukeskus 102]
Greg Bossert [M], Margaret Dunlap, Ruth EJ Booth, Anna-Leena Harinen, Mike Kiss
“Many scifi and fantasy movies and television shows are adapted from literature. There are both good examples and bad ones. What makes an adaptation good or bad? How’s the adaption market like these days? How do you write a good adaptation?”
Aside from panels, I’ll also be taking part in the academic poster events on Saturday 12th August.
UPDATE: Please note that some posters will be displayed earlier in the convention, so if you can’t make these events, there are still opportunities to take a look at all the STEM and Humanities projects on display.
Academic Poster Talks
A series of 5 minute presentations from the teams displaying academic posters at this year’s Worldcon. I’ll be presenting on my poster, ‘Mapping the Way: Taoism and Landscape in Ursula Le Guin’s Earthsea Quartet’.
Academic Poster Displays
While the academic posters will be displayed all day Saturday, the teams behind each poster will all be available during this period to discuss the topics behind them.
Academic Poster Presentation Awards Ceremony
The winner will be decided from this year’s STEM displays.
You can also find my panel schedule (minus the academic poster events) by searching Booth on the Grenadine Site, or clicking here: https://sites.grenadine.co/sites/worldcon75/en/w75/participants/3347/Ruth+EJ+Booth.
Hope to see you there!
