Updated WorldCon Schedule

I've gotten a final schedule for my appearances at the 69th Annual World Science Fiction Convention, so I wanted to update my last post. Here are the panels I'll be participating in, along with their times and locations:

  • Thursday 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. Language Creation Workshop (Special Interest
    Group), A18 (RSCC)

    Are you looking to incorporate a created language or two into your fictional universe? Are you curious what goes into creating a language? Perhaps you just find language fascinating? Whatever the case, the Language Creation Society's workshop is for you! In this hands-on workshop, participants will work together to create a miniature language, and learn what goes into creating an authentic language. No prior experience is necessary.

  • Friday 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. Neologism and Linguicide: How the Dominant
    Language Mutates and Assimilates Other Languages
    (Panel), D04

    We've all heard of species becoming endangered, but the famous anthropologist Wade Davis warns of a similar problem happening to the languages which endangers the richness of the world's cultures. How we preserve or destroy these languages and how we cultivate linguistic habits, will determine what we are able to think in the world of the near future.
