Wiscon Schedule 2010

I'll probably have to leave the SignOut early to make my plane. Anyone heading back to Chicago by car around noonish?

1:00–2:15 pm
Conference 2
Haddayr Copley-Woods, Theodora Goss, M Rickert, Benjamin Rosenbaum
2:30–3:45 pm
Room 629
"While it's important to raise our daughters to respect themselves, our sons also need to learn how to treat women as equals. This can be especially tricky if they are exposed to more sexist ideas in the media or from other children/adults. What are some techniques for raising feminist boys—and which ones backfire? What are the different challenges at each stage of a boy's life?"
Moderator: Katje Sabin. With Kate Bachus, Heather, Karen H. Moore, Benjamin Rosenbaum
1:00–2:15 pm
Room 629
Moderator: Benjamin Rosenbaum. With Victoria Gaydosik, Yoon Ha Lee, David D. Levine, Derek Molata
4:00–5:15 pm
Conference 5
"Science fiction has posited a wide range of economic models, from total abundance to mean scarcity, from plutocracy to collectivism. What happens when goods are freely available to all? What happens when long–lasting food rations are worth killing for? Which books actually talk about economics (whether capitalist or socialist or some other sort) without handwaving it all away?"
Moderator: Benjamin Rosenbaum. With Fred, Christopher Davis, Gayle, Yonatan Zunger
11:30 am - 12:45 pm
