More details to follow. MarsCon is one of the few major science fiction conventions in the Midwest (and arguably, the country) to have actively programmed Lao and Southeast Asian-themed panels proposed by and presented by Lao and Southeast Asian Americans.
We're considering what we can present within this year's themes for sure. It seems fairly obvious to do a panel on decolonized time, based on many of our previous discussions on the subject. But what else might we consider?
