Greetings from self-isolation, friends. I’m wishing everyone health and easy days.
As professor, and as a volunteer for my local con- the Quarantine Quarter has been a challenge. Zoom classes, online office hours, and then eventually Virtual Visioncon!
I volunteer with Visioncon’s marketing team and assisted, in a small way, while the amazing Zack Wilson hosted a panoply of guests, panels, and celebrities. Zack and the team did an amazing job in providing content on our original con weekend, but of course, all did not go according to plan. When does it ever?
At one point, one of our guests (sadly, the one that cosplay husband and I were looking forward to most) could not make it. We had an empty slot and no plan to fill it. So…..into the fray I jumped, and gave a presentation on Harley Quinn!
I happened to have a powerpoint ready, but my delivery is, well, less than prepared.
In any event, I provide the video here for you if you’d like to check it out!
It’s a bit more academic than my usual post, as it was prepared for the Fan Studies Network conference, and my actual presentation was thrown together, but with those caveats, here it is!
