LeakyCon Portland has ended
Hi there! Welcome to the LeakyCon Sched.org! Please note, that signing up for this site or indicating which sessions you will be at is not at all required. You cannot reserve a seat to a session on this site; if a session looks "full" it’s only because we input the capacity of the rooms. All sessions at LeakyCon are first-come first-serve except for the autograph and photo-booth sessions that indicate otherwise. Lit programming may still only be attended by those who have a Lit badge (these are now sold out). Again: you do not have to sign up for this site or use it in any way in order to go to any event at LeakyCon. it’s a way for you to find other people who are interested in the same things you are, and a way for you to show your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and beyond what you’re interested in at the conference. But it is not in ANY way a ticketing system. We hope you enjoy surfing the schedule!

Tribe StarKid: Fandom as Ecclesia for the Millennial Generation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In Urban Tribes, author Ethan Watters describes how it is that members of the Millennial generation cultivate a family of choice, a community he labels an urban tribe. The urban tribe itself comes to represent an ideal community to young adults, one which not only lends meaning and purpose to their lives, but which calls them into the process of meaning-making themselves. By analyzing Team StarKid, we can create a case study model for how Millennials expand the concept of urban tribes into vibrant ecclesia.
