Featured Guest: GeekGirlCon

We’re excited for VikingCon 2013 this Saturday! We’ll be posting spotlights each day leading up to the event, as well as some giveaways.

Today’s spotlight is GeekGirlCon, an organization and convention celebrating the female geek. We have Jen Stuller (co-founder of GeekGirlCon) joining us at VikingCon, along with Dr. Amy Peloff and Jessica Obrist for their presentation on Feminist Geek Culture.

GeekGirlCon is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting awareness of and celebrating the contribution and involvement of women in all aspects of the sciences, science fiction, comics, gaming and related Geek culture through conventions and events that emphasize both historic and ongoing contribution and influence of women in this culture. It is an annual event that takes place in Seattle.

Jen, Jessica, and Amy will be presenting at 1:45pm in VU 567.
