Preliminary Program Grid for Karen Wester Newton

This is the Preliminary program schedule. Karen Wester Newton 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 5:00 pm: Well Worn Classics (Ends at: 5:55 pm) Frederick
Panelists:Scott Edelman, Barbara Krasnoff (M), Karen Wester Newton, Lee Strong
Description of Program Some science fiction classics are so steeped in the time they were written, they are painful to read now. In some ways, getting the technology wrong is secondary to getting the sociology wrong, as when sexism and racism rear their now-ugly heads. What classic novels show their age but are still a pleasure to read, and which make us wince?
Saturday 11:00 am: Language in Fantasy Worldbuilding (Ends at: 11:55 am) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Scott H. Andrews, Emmie Mears, Karen Wester Newton, Jon Skovron (M)
In secondary world fantasy, do you write dialogue in contemporary speech, or period language? How do you come up with names of people and places? What about slang and colloquialisms?
Saturday 4:00 pm: Politics in Science Fiction & Fantasy (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists:Anthony Dobranski, Larry Hodges, Karen Wester Newton (M), Ian Randal Strock, David Walton
If you have a civilization, you have politics. A discussion on the types of politics used in science fiction and fantasy, looking at why certain types seem to appear in certain genres.
Saturday 5:30 pm: Karen Wester Newton Reading (Ends at: 5:55 pm) Seneca
Panelists:Karen Wester Newton
