Motherhood in SF and Fantasy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Where are the mothers in our depictions of future societies and fantasy worlds? Very often absent or ignored. Our panel looks at the depictions of motherhood and asks what more we can do. Terry Jackman moderates Aliette de Bodard, Chris Beckett, Mike Cobley and Rochita Loenen-Ruiz.

Secretary of the Board, Bayanihan Foundation (Center for Filipina Women in the Netherlands)
Inclusivity, diversity, feminism, cultural heritage, indigeniety, identity, and issues of gender and race are things I write about and deal with in my work. I am passionate about the written word, art, music and history and how these things influence us and the way we look at the world around us. I am a Filipina in the diaspora and I am an Octavia Butler scholar.
