About Us

About Us

AboutSF is the educational outreach branch of the Center for the Study of Science fiction at the University of Kansas. We encourage scholars, readers, instructors, and fans to connect with each other, utilize our resources, and share their ideas about anything SF.  Founded in 2005, we're now in our eighth year of operation. Our programs include our Science Fiction Summer School, our Portable SF Workshop, our Teaching Workshop, the Speculative Speakers database, and all the resources we provide on our site for free.

Our Staff


Christina Nelson  -- Volunteer Coordinator

Once upon a time, Christina wanted to be an astrophysicist in France... but being a scientist was not in the stars. After earning her BA and MA in French and Francophone Studies from the University of Iowa as well as teaching in France, she came to KU to study French SF literature and film in the Department of French and Italian. Now a second-year PhD student, she plans to work on J.H. Rosny aîné and Luc Besson for her dissertation. Antoine Volodine, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and Jean-Claude Dunyach are also possible contenders.
