Dr. Jenny Alexander was an invited speaker at the new and very successful Sci-fi and Fantasy convention, Nine Worlds.
Some 1300 attended the event, which took place at the Radison and Renaissance Hotels at Heathrow 9-11 August.
Jenny spoke alongside journalist Laurie Penny and author Roz Kaveney, among others, on panels discussing Joss Whedon and Feminism, LGBTQ Representation in Genre Television, and Feminism and Game of Thrones. The well-attended “Geek Feminism” track was organised by former BU student Sian Fever (Television Production), who now works in London as a freelance editor.
