Opinions and Arguments: Eternal Struggles of the Passionate Fan

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

This is a panel about the seemingly age-old habit of debating and its tendency to tear fans apart and divide communities. We hope to arm the curious with the know-how to engage in fair, honest and respectful debates when argument seems all but inevitable. We will also talk about how personal interpretations, fanworks, and criticism all play a part in our neverending battle to celebrate and defend our most beloved characters and stories.

Other things this panel will cover: learning how to criticize fairly and why it's okay to be criticized, how to tell the difference between theory, hypothesis and speculation; and making clear the big picture that discussions of fans' opinions should be a positive sharing experience even if debate is involved.
