How to Save Your Inner Wonder Woman

Using the self-help guide How to Save Your Inner Wonder Woman: A Guide for Caregivers and Allies of Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse Using Wonder Woman (2020), Kenneth Rogers, Jr. presents on the pitfalls of burnout and compassion fatigue on caregivers and allies. This presentation will center around DC comic’s Wonder Woman, explaining how many caregivers leave their own Paradise Island of safety and comfort in hopes of helping others overcome their past trauma. Wonder Woman’s identity as Truth Queen offers an excellent example for caregivers and allies to understand that if caregivers and allies of survivors of childhood sexual abuse do not learn to practice good trauma stewardship they will never learn to achieve balance and become the master of two worlds.

The Importance of Being an Ambassador for the Geeky World

As pop culture enthusiasts, we are passionate about the things we love. This sometimes causes issues with newcomers as they can feel excluded when those “experts” demand a certain level of commitment to a fandom or community. “At The Diner” hosts Mike Lunsford, James Rambo and guest Ulysses Campbell discuss the importance of being ambassadors to fandom and never “gatekeeping” anyone’s access or enjoyment of geekdom.

Rick-istentialism: Rick and Morty and Philosophy

The multiverse is a wild place, broh! Lotta worlds, crazy stuff happens for no reason, and there are an infinite number of versions of you out there – really makes you wonder about the meaning of existence. Deep stuff! This panel addresses the existential and absurdist underpinnings of “”Rick and Morty””, and the show’s lessons for living a full, meaningful life in a chaotic world, through the framework of Morty’s infamous quote: “Nobody exists on purpose, nobody belongs anywhere, everybody’s gonna die. Come watch TV.” The panel doesn’t require the audience to know anything about “”Rick and Morty”” or philosophy to follow along, and it will feature several clips from the show for everyone’s enjoyment!

Cosplay is limitless

Learn the power you have within. Join us and take a closer look into how cospositivity can help you use it as a platform for antibullying, children’s charity, to help you over come social anxiety and so much more. Cosplay not only allows us to look like our favorite superheroes, we can also become one. We can become one by promoting cospositivity. We stress and promote how important it is to cosplay from the heart whoever you want whenever you want; having acceptance to all shapes, sizes, colors, genders and skill level. Spreading how important it is to be kind to all cosplayers because they were brave enough to cosplay, put a lot of thought into it and do it out of the love for a fandom or character. We also discuss how to become heroes by incorporating charity with cosplay. We all care about something so let’s support each other, appreciate the craft, creativity and hard work that goes into cosplay but most of all let’s all have fun and do good while doing so.

Let’s Talk About the Odds

Never Tell Us the Odds is a YouTube channel where two friends engage the community and share their love of the multi-generational adventures of Star Wars. The hosts are a pair of third culture kids who had very different introductions to Star Wars — one is an original era kid and reformed action figure collector, the other a prequel era kid and LEGO aficionado. But whether in Hong Kong, Bulgaria, Nigeria, Mongolia, or even the US, they each used Star Wars to connect with friends and strangers alike. Their presentations touch on the old and new Expanded Universes, look at the ever evolving lore of Star Wars, prognosticate on what tales (or retcons) Lucasfilm has in store for us, and encourage people to share their own stories of connection brought about through a shared love of the galaxy far, far away.
