Her paper, The Punks of Steampunk, is a well thought out study of how we are "punking" traditional views and ideas on everything from period accuracy to how we view being physically challenged or other gendered. It is a wonderful piece of work that really shows how huge, international and Splendid this genre/community is.


Grab a cup of tea, get comfortable and give this your full attention.


Sarah's Bio:


Sarah is part of the Official Edmonton steampunk group, a steampunk cruise naval veteran, and a founding member of the steampunk and electro swing fusion dance troupe Raqs Macabre, and the folkloric belly dance troupe Nomadic Tapestry. Sarah is also a cosplayer specializing in multicultural and fantasy inspired steampunk looks (Pinterest: Multicultural Steampunk Adventures). She enjoys a good story told in any medium and a nice cup of tea. She gained the name The Petite Lady of Steam while traveling with the Steam Lady, aka Melissa Warenberg , owner of Attic Raiders and In the Attic.

That was indeed a well presented and thoughtful article. The meaning of the punk element is often little considered. It is pleasing to see it ably explored here.
