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.

I decided to set up CRSF 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.

Now in its fifth year. Each conference has been an amazing experience to organise and participate in.
