Indigenizing & diversifying SF&F conventions: Panel suggestions

I wrote earlier about a 3-part series that fellow writer, Zainab Amadahy, was writing for Muskrat Magazine about the lack of cultural diversity in the typical science fiction & fantasy convention. My prior post had links to the first two parts in the series. Zainab has now posted the third and final part in her series, in which she provides some excellent ideas for possibile panel topics that explore the issue of how to introduce greater diversity into not only SF&F conventions, but also the literature, the publishing industry, and our society and way of thinking. I hope that you'll check it out. I'm also hoping that maybe we can suggest some of these panels for an upcoming Toronto convention, such as the always excellent Ad Astra, in April 4-6, 2014.
