"A discussion panel examining Western, Amero-centric ideals and narrative models that have dominated the SF field for decades. The panel will delve into the state of modern SF publishing, it's obsession with formulaic Hollywood models dominated by traditional Western tropes and the classic good vs evil paradigm, and how the micro, small and mid-sized presses are working to bridge the gap. The panel will also touch on how the New Wave movement of the mid 1960s to 1970s tried to challenge SF tradition, and offer ideas and solicit suggestions on how readers might be "retrained"."
