The Steampunk Symposium 2020 Program brings you an examination of the strangest fringe groups of the 1800’s.

Presented by Greg Pizzino.


This presentation will take look at some of the strangest fringe groups from around the world: Who they were, what they believed, and how some of them still have lasting legacies today.


Greg Pizzino is an author, performer, playwright, and podcaster, with degrees and certifications in literature and film making from Tulane University and the Motion Picture Institute of Michigan. He is the host and producer of the bizarre film podcast Cinema Guano, and his short fiction appears in the anthologies “Valves and Vixens Vol. 2” and “The Queen of Clocks and Other Steampunk Tales.” His most recent work, the full length musical “Benestopheles!: The Last Days of Ghoulita Graves” debuts in April, 2020.
