Introduction to Steampunk
April 28 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 am
Whether completely new to Steampunk, or just looking for a refresher, this presentation is a welcome and orientation to the basics of Steampunk and the International Steampunk Symposium.
Learn about some of the history, the tropes, different archetypes, and most of all that there is no correct way to be a Steampunk . . . this fantastical world is one of whimsy, and far, far, far from being “historically accurate.” 😛
Writer, editor, and journalist, Emilie P. Bush is a quintessential Do-It-Yourself steampunk. Since the first Symposium in 2012, Emilie has been a special guest and became a lifetime member of the convention, but in April 2017 she also accepted the role of lead MC.
