Each year, Con-Volution presents a central theme from which most of our programming items evolve. 2012 immersed attendees in an Urban Fantasy setting, 2013 explored the Realms of Dream, and 2014 saw us travel Halfway Home through space.
Con-Volution 2015’s theme, LEGION OF FANDOM, focuses on the phenomenon of Fandom itself. It represents a warm welcome and celebration of fans and the genres they enjoy, and serves as a reminder that we are everywhere, that we come from all walks of life. Literature, comics, film, animation, gaming, performing arts, etc. – everything from ancient myth to children’s cartoons will be on the table.
We’ll dig up the worldwide roots of fandom and speculative fiction, confront modern depictions of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and physical form and ability in both speculative fiction and overall Geek Culture, and just plain enjoy each other’s company as we share the fandoms we love.
