Like a Tsurezuregusa for a philosophy grad student.

 

philosofly, I thought that you might get a kick out of this.

Home from CPAC and DragonCon

I’m back from DragonCon and the always awesome CPAC. I’d like to thank everyone who showed up to our panels this year, and especially kellysue and laurennmcc for being gracious enough to participate on our panels.

Also, CPAC wouldn’t have been a thing without the hard work of wolvensnotherekaristorla, and philosofly, who all contributed and helped with logistics.

I plan to spend the next week (at least) processing my responses to everything CPAC, as well as working on some new thoughts that occured to me on the drive back from the conference.

Again, thanks to everyone who came by or participated in CPAC panels this year: you all made it worth while.

1hr till the roundtable on race, gender, and sexuality in comics and fandom.

If you’re at DragonCon and these things matter to you, you should attend. I’m excited to be on the same panel as kellysue and laurennmcc to discuss these important issues with fans. It’s a real privilege.

If you’re at the con, Hyatt Hanover F, 10pm.

My twitter lives again!

You can find me at “shengokai.” Gonna be tweeting all of the Comics and Popular Arts Conference and bits of Dragon*Con.

And if you’re coming to @DragonCon & enjoy it when academics and industry professionals have SUPER intense conversations about issues of class, race, gender, and sexuality, then here’s some more clarity:

Sunday Night. 10:00 PM. Comics Track in Hyatt, Hanover F. The “ROUNDTABLE ON RACE,…

Echoing wolvensnothere on this. If race, gender, and sexuality matters to you, come out and participate in the roundtable in Hyatt, Hanover F at 10pm. It’s going to be a hell of a conversation.

Also, new followers I picked up at my panels, welcome! The interesting stuff can be found in my philosophy, race, phenomenology, or philosophizing the apocalypse tags. I’ll try to engage in some form of organization.

There’s a reason I refer to Wolven as the party’s face.

Backpack ruins the line of the suit.

I’d end that with a “[/vanity]” but let’s be honest: that tag is always open-ended.

Hey look everyone, I’m in the corner!

Answer me this: Do you want to have more, or do you want to have More Than? Do you want power, or do you want Power Over?

I’m looking for and working toward making sure that everyone has the ability to do what needs doing in their lives, to create what needs creating, to make a life that’s fulfilling and meaningful for them, when the gain on the “Opinions of Others” knob is turned down as low as it’ll go.

What matters to you? What kind of life do you want to live? What kind of world do you want to live it in? What does it take to make that happen?

SOMEBODY JUST TOLD ME THAT BOTH KELLY-SUE DECONNICK AND LAURENN MCCUBBIN WILL BE ON A ROUNDTABLE WITH ME AND SEVERAL OTHER ACADEMICS TO DISCUSS RACE, GENDER, AND SEXUALITY IN COMICS AND FANDOM.

INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS AND ACADEMICS ENGAGING WITH FANS AND EACH OTHER OVER ISSUES OF RACE, GENDER, AND SEXUALITY IN COMICS AND COMICS FANDOM. THIS IS THE HIGH POINT, THE END GOAL OF EVERYONE WHO DOES THIS KIND OF WORK.

TO ACTUALLY BE PART OF A DISCOURSE WITH THE BIG NAMES IN THE INDUSTRY AND THE FANS. I AM LOSING MY ACADEMIC SHIT OVER HERE.
