Panel D 10 – 10:50 am (sun)

Infinite Neurodiversity In Infinite Combinations:
Neurodiversity, Madness, and Eugenics

Discussion of mental difference, genetic augmentation, and eugenic
ideology in the Star Trek universe. Have we learned the lessons of the
Eugenics Wars? Why do institutions exist in the future? What does it
mean to be an "intelligent being"? And why is genetic engineering
illegal in the Federation, anyway?

Hosts: Leila Yoder (she/they), Jennifer Hughes (she/they), Sara Liss (she/they)
