SLSA 2008, On the Road Again

I’m driving down to Charlotte, North Carolina for the annual Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts conference.  This is the second time that I’ve presented at SLSA.  My presentation last year was on “Subversive Subjectivity in Battlestar Galactica,” and this year I’m presenting on the political efficacy of “transsexual technologies.”  There are several concurrent panels during my session’s time slot on Saturday, so I’m wondering what the turnout will be like, and what reception my paper will receive.  I’ll post about the conference, time permitting, from Charlotte.  However, I have two papers to write while I’m there in addition to attending sessions, so my updates may have to wait until I return to Kent.
