Preliminary Program Grid for Carolyn Ives Gilman
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Carolyn Ives Gilman may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.
|Friday 4:00 pm: Antagonist Vs. Villain (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Carolyn Ives Gilman, Alan Loewen (M), Will McIntosh, Christie Meierz
Not all antagonists are villains. What is the difference? Why would authors use a non-villain antagonist? Who are some of the best non-villain antagonists in SF?

Panelists:Catherine Asaro, John Ashmead (M), Carolyn Ives Gilman, C.S. MacCath
What is quantum mechanics (in layman's terms please) and how do writers make use of it in science fiction? What writers do this most effectively without requiring the reader to take a graduate course first?

Why aren't rebels, revolutionary conflicts & post-revolutionary societies portrayed with more nuance or variety in speculative fiction (e.g. analogs to Mandela & Gandhi)? Examples will be drawn from fiction and world history.
