Will you be in Cincinnati between April 28-30 for ISS? Come on by and say hello to Steampunk Journal's US correspondent.

Happy Birthday, Steampunk!

In just 24 short hours, Phoebe will be hitting the road once again to report on an amazing Steampunk event. This is her second time visiting the International Steampunk Symposium, but this year she’s going as more than just a reporter. When the convention organizers approached her about curating an exhibit documenting the 30 years of Steampunk since the word was coined in 1987, she dusted of her Museum Studies MA and put together something rather splendid. The exhibit will be on view from April 28-30 in Cincinnati, with a possibility for another venue later this summer. Symposium attendees can also catch Phoebe’s talk on the exhibit either Saturday 4:30pm or Sunday 1:30pm, as well as a talk about infusing the steam era with supernatural elements (Fri 10pm) and the relationship between aether and alchemy (Sat 8pm).

If you can’t make it to the Symposium, don’t fret! After the dust has settled from back to back conventions, Steampunk Journal readers will get to experience the exhibit as a weekly article series as well. Here’s a little taste:

NewsNews - EventsNews - Exhibitions

Gears, goggles and glamour; Corsets, crafts and creativity; Sci-fi, silliness and steampunk; Dirigibles, dancing and DIY; Physics, phonics and phoenixes; Bustles, balloons and beads; Lace, leather and life; Fantasy, feathers and flaws; Paper, piercings and pirates!
