We have been following Ay-leen’s blog, Beyond Victoriana, for quite some time – with  the intelligent multicultural and specifically eastern-inspired bend of the discourse, we couldn’t resist bringing her in as a speaker for our Wild, Wild East theme in 2011.


Ay-leen’s Beyond Victoriana blog has covered a miriad of interesting topics, from “Africans in Ancient China” to “Asians in the Americas” and she has a good deal to say about Boilerplate, by our Artist Guests of Honor Paul Guinan and Anina Bennet! She has featured several guest bloggers on her site and speaks with authority, compassion and a spirit of exploration that we find admirable.


Ay-leen will be presenting at Nova Albion alongside Jaymee (Jha) Goh – check out Jaymee’s blog, Silver Goggles and her thoughts on The Golden Age of Islam on Beyond Victoriana.
