They Look Like Me: Bodies in Nerd Culture

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The media we love affect how we view ourselves and how we feel about our bodies. Sam de Leve (Callisto 6) moderates a panel of creators and fitness experts from across the nerd world, including Sarah Kuhn (Heroine Complex, I Love You So Mochi), Christy Black (Hero's Journey Fitness), B. Dave Walters (Dungeons & Dragons: A Darkened Wish), and Mairghread Scott (Netflix's Magic: The Gathering, Marvel Rising), in a discussion of body image in geeky media. Where are we doing well? Where do we need to improve? And, how does seeing ourselves reflected in the books, movies, cartoons, and comics we cherish change the nature of our fandom and our feelings about ourselves?
