, behind the cut is a list of Worldcon panels or program items that seemed to be explicitly about discrimination, diversity, race, gender, sexuality, disability, and/or non-European-derived works, artists, and fandoms, or to necessarily require discussion of the above. Because there's a fair bit of anime & manga programming, I put that separately. The lists are otherwise in chronological order. Absolutely no comment or endorsement is implied by an item's appearance on this list. If I missed something, let me know; this is based on a pretty quick skim through the book.
Note that something awful happened to the formatting of the academic talk descriptions in the program book; I put in // to mark what I infer are different papers.
The full program book is available in PDF
; I hope that grids and something easier to manage are on the way. This list itself may be turned into an at-con handout with grid or some such, so stay tuned.ETA July 23 8:00 a.m.:
six items. Also forgot to note that I don't speak French so was going strictly off English descriptions. If you speak French or know of a bilingual panel (which appear to not be marked at all in the program book as such), please comment.ETA July 23 6:30 p.m.
: new additions are now marked with one or two *, depending on whether they were added this round or last round. Bilingual items are marked as such in the titles, using the information here.
. I've also now bolded the relevant paper(s) in the academic track items for ease of reference, and gone through all the French-language descriptions with two web translators.I am now finished updating this unless people point me to things I've missed.ETA July 31
: someone did
! I'll put this in the proper place in the list under the cut too.
