Current Research in Speculative Fiction (CRSF) is a postgraduate conference designed to promote the research of speculative fictions including, but not limited to, science fiction, fantasy and horror.
Working with fellow Ph.D. students at the University of Liverpool, I founded CRSF in 2011 to showcase some of the latest developments in the dynamic and evolving field of speculative fiction criticism. The conference provides a platform for the presentation of current research by postgraduates and is inspired by similar postgraduate conferences that I've witnessed in other fields.
I worked on the organisation of six CRSF conferences, however the conference was designed to be "by-students-for-students" and thus having completed my Ph.D. in 2016 I redesigned my role as the leader of an executive committee guiding a new generation of University of Liverpool students in their organisation of the conference.
