17:00 Tältet: Föredrag: Fantastisk svamp Temat svamp kryper som svartmögel uppför baksidan på fantastikens badkar. Karin Tidbeck, som själv har använt svamp som dramaturgiskt verktyg, presenterar sina litterära favoriter.

17:00 Konferensen: Föredrag: Ångmaskiner och eterflygare, bordsrollspel och steampunk. Anders Blixt.

17:25 Tältet: Föredrag: Vokaler och voodoodockor Magi och besvärjande i antiken. Fantastisk litteratur är ofta full av formler och magi.

Sådant har verklighetens människor ägnat sig åt i alla tider. Föredraget beskriver en del av de magiska ritualer som antikens människor ägnade sig åt - både som illustration och inspiration! Ola Wikander.

18:00 Tältet: Panel: Is there an underdeveloped PUNK potential in Steampunk?

The word "steampunk" originally didn't refer to any punk content at all, but was just a pun on "cyberpunk", a dominating movement in science fiction in the 1980's. Still, the word is suggestive and makes many look for the punk in steampunk. Some of them, some of the time, are disappointed, and say like Cat Valente: "what a joke it is to call something so inherently nostalgic, conservative, and comfort-oriented 'punk.'" Is there a potential, an unfulfilled promise, of "punk" in steampunk? If so, what would be interesting ways of developing the punkier kinds of steampunk?

Miriam R. Roček, Mike Perschon, Chris Wooding, Cory Doctorow, Hillevi Pleijel (m).

18:00 Konferensen: Föredrag: Zombieöverlevnad.

Herman Geijer (www.zombieoverlevnad.se) lär oss hur man överlever zombiekatastrofen.

18:00 Hall 1: Panel: Är min fantasy fin nog?

Skillnader i smak är berikande, och att kunna uttrycka sin smak är en bra sak. Men det är lätt att grupper – inom till exempel sf-fandom – bygger hierarkier där vissa sorters läsning är förknippat med högre status. I små och slutna kompisgäng är det kanske inte så problematiskt att odla en intern smak och hylla en intern kanon medan annat sågas. Men det blir en annan dynamik på till exempel sf-kongresser eller i större forum online. När personer som uppfattas som tongivande uttrycker sig på ett sätt som kan ses som nedlåtande om vissa typer av fantastik, då kan hela grupper känna sig uteslutna eller nedvärderade.

Nene Ormes, Britt-Louise Viklund, Sofia Karlsson, Socialist Simon, Anna Davour (m).

19:00 Tältet: Opening ceremony + Steampunk möter sf-fandom Representanter från steampunkrörelsen och sf-fandom presenterar sig för publiken och varandra. Hur ser respektive nätverks historia ut och vad sysslar vi med idag?

Vad har vi gemensamt och hur skiljer vi oss åt? Vad kan vi lära oss, och hur behåller varje grupp sin identitet?

Emil Jonasson och Anneli Wihman (steampunkare), Sofia Karlsson och Daniel Albertsson (sf-fans).

19:15 Konferensen: Föredrag: Steampunkserier. Historik och nutid.

En översikt av av steampunk i serieform både från före och efter att formen etablerats.

Mårten Svantesson och Rasmus Kaj.

20:00 GoH Speech: Cory Doctorow 20:00 Konferensen: Filmvisning: Steam Trek & Pressure Steam Trek – The Moving Picture är en hjärtlig crossover mellan Steampunk och Star Trek, producerad av hängivna fans 1994. Filmen är regisserad av Dennis Sisterson, manus av Dennis Sisterson samt Ashely Levy. Filmen kretsar kring ett av de äventyr som det ångdrivna rymdskeppet “Enterprise” möter på sin resa genom världsrymden, allt självklart i prima viktoriansk stil, svart-vit stumfilm med tidstypisk pianomusik.

Pressure. Även med små resurser, amatörer blandade med professionella så kan man skapa riktiga små underverk. Filmen Pressure från 2013 har blivit rikligt prisad för både starkt manus och visuella effekter. Handlingen kretsar kring ett framtida San Francisco där faran med ett samhälle byggt på höga ångtryck blir uppenbar, vad är egentligen den acceptabla nivån på olyckor som ett ångdrivet samhälle kan medföra? Pressure är skriven och regisserad av Michelle Prevost och producerad av Illena Ferrer.

20:00 Hall 1: Panel: Fantastiska poddar Podd, podcast, poddsändning, poddradio, ljudkapsel – kärt barn har många namn.

År 2013 var “poddens år” enligt flera medier och i denna poddexplosion finns det såklart en del att lyssna på som rör våra genrer. Några poddare ur fantastikens led diskuterar formatets möjligheter och svårigheter, babbel, teknikstrul och tips.

Jonny Berg (Swedish Zomcast), Anders Björkelid (Fantastisk podd), Anna Davour (Gårdagens värld idag igen), Maria Nygård (m).

20:00 Brun vagn: Bokcirkel: The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray (Chris Wooding) Ledare: Socialist Simon.

20:00 Röd vagn: Kaffeeklatsch. Fika med Miriam Rosenberg Roček Föranmälan.

21:00 Tältet: GoH Interview: Chris Wooding Chris Wooding talks to Nene Ormes.

21:00 Konferensen: Lecture: Mike Perschon: Useful Troublemakers New Women in the Steampunk novels of Cherie Priest and Gail Carriger.

Steampunk's retrofuturist gaze is almost uniformly associated with technology;

consequently, steampunk retrofuturism rarely realizes the historical aspirations of the nineteenth century. Instead, it ends up being the way we imagine the past seeing the future. While these imaginings often take the shape of dirigibles and clockwork beings, they have the potential to reimagine the social spaces of the past, as Cherie Priest and Gail Carriger's steampunk novels do with women in the nineteenth century.

21:00 Hall 1: Panel: Den svenskspråkiga fantastiknovellen Det finns knappt några tidskrifter längre, men istället har det kommit en del antologier de senaste åren. Hur är läget för den svenskspråkiga fantastiknovellen idag? Är det stycksålda e-noveller som är framtiden? Och vart tog fantasyn vägen?

Johan Jönsson, Karin Tidbeck, Elin Holmerin, Nahal Ghanbari (m).

21:00 Röd vagn: Workshop: Frivoliteter / Tatting Lär dig slå frivoliteter (tatting), ett enkelt sätt att tillverka allt från dukar till smycken i spets. Populärt under 1860-talet. Föranmälan.

Anna Troy och Elisabeth Norell.

22:00 Tältet: Föredrag: Vindlande vaginor och bodysnatchers Biologi att inspireras eller få mardrömmar av. Torill Kornfeldt.

22:00 Konferensen: Föredrag: Steampunkmusik: remake, kopia, eller avantgarde?

Det finns ingen musikstil som är steampunkmusik, men det finns gott om musik som spelas där steampunkintresserade möts. Dessutom har många valt att göra musik som kläs i steampunkdräkt genom text eller instrumentval eller genom bandets framtoning och utseende. Vad är det som gör att band som Rasputina eller Dresden Dolls uppfattas som "steampunkiga"? Vad är det Abney Park gör, när de går in för att vara ett steampunkband? Och hur steampunk är egentligen stilen electro swing?

Johan Rydberg.

10:00 Konferensen: Föredrag: Att leva i framtiden Reflektioner kring hur det är att leva i det som förr var långt in i framtiden men som numera är precis nu.

Tony Elgenstierna.
