Somehow I convinced myself to sign up for panels again. Even contacted programming when one disappeared (they brought it back for me).

Changing Reading Tastes Over One's Lifespan
Sat, 10:00–11:15 am Conference 5
Moderator: Liza Furr. Liza Furr, Courtney, Lesley Hall, Janet M. Lafler, Andy Smith

Let's talk about whether we read differently at different times of life. Have your tastes in reading changed over the years? Are there authors, topics, and techniques that used to thrill you but no longer do? Are there writers or works that you couldn't stand years ago but now enjoy? Have you become easier or harder to please? Do you find yourself disagreeing with older or younger friends about the quality of the books you read?

The Many Meta Elements of Avatar: The Last Airbender
Sat, 4:00–5:15 pm Capitol A
Moderator: Erin Elizabeth Kelly. Erin Elizabeth Kelly, Lisa Blauersouth, Sunny Chen, Jaymee Goh, Genevieve A. Lopez, Andy Smith

Avatar: The Last Airbender is popular in part due to the research that has gone into the Asian-inspired setting, which pays deep respect to the source material without seeming appropriative. Yet it remains at heart an American show, complete with certain troubling tropes. What do we love about its homage to Asia? What are the problems in its construction? What implications does this have for its young audiences?

You're gonna talk about my boys in the swamp on the Avatar panel, right??

Awwwwww, now i'm realizing:
a) I don't see any women in the swamp, it IS just boys.
b) I ain't got no swampbender icons.

BEST. \o/ Will be very curious to see whether people agree or whether they just "don't see what the problem is".
