Broaden Your Intellect

Do all those sci-fi shows make you feel smarter than most? reports that anthropologist Daryl Frazetti will be lecturing on Star Trek and its impact on culture.

Of note to the women of Club Jade, one of his lectures will be entitled “From Bjo Trimble to Starwars Chicks: Female Fans of Star Wars and Star Trek.”

According to the article, “Based on his research into fandom, the talk will focus on the historical role of women in the fan community, and discuss how media stereotypes of fans are often problematic. There will also be a comparison of male and female fans regarding their fan activities, and a comparison of “Star Wars” fans to Star Trek fans.”

How quickly will this talk end up on the internet?
