Fantasy authors often have borrowed from history to create their secondary worlds, using historical periods as setting, inspiration, and sometimes the just plain weird. When does it go too far and cross a line into cultural appropriation, misrepresentation, or disrespect? The panel discusses the various approaches taken to incorporate historical context, cultures and world views into secondary world Fantasy, and the pitfalls that might appear.
