Panel
When:
Sunday Aug 19   04:00 PM to 05:00 PM (1 hour)
Genres like cyberpunk, space opera, science fiction and more rely on technology to show us how the world has changed. Disabled people live on the thriving edge of accessible tech, their adaptive devices often outpacing the bodyhacking technology of the genres their peers are writing. These disabled readers and writers will discuss how to better represent accessible technology in SF, and how it can create space for disabled characters in our futures, rather than erase them from the narrative.
