Doxacon tickets are on sale now! We’re sad that we can’t all meet up in person this year but we’re really excited for the lineup of great speakers we have this year!
Doxacon is going to be exploring virtuous decisions we make about and in fiction. This can include what fiction we choose to consume, how we create fiction, what truths & lessons we take from the fiction we love, and what decisions we make in fictional situations like roleplaying games. St. Basil says that discerning virtue and fundamental truths in the pagan literature of the times can strengthen our regard for the deeper wisdom of the Gospel. So how do we figure out what fiction has those virtues and truths?
We’re bringing back some speakers from our very first Doxacon, back in 2013; our co-founder Fr. David Subu. Fr. David will be speaking on the epic science fiction story of Dune. Specifically on the role and power of memory of things past and visions of things to come; an especially timely talk for our time.
Our lay keynote speaker Frederica Mathewes-Green will be speaking on St. Basil’s Address to Young Men on Greek Literature and discussing different examples of literature that have virtue and fundamental truths and how we can discern which to read.
Many of our speakers are going to be beaming in, over Zoom, from around the country. But whether you’re a fan of Lewis, Tolkien, Dune, Avatar the Last Airbender, or Doctor Who we’ll have something for you this year.
