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 work to give educators and librarians the resources they need to teach science fiction at all levels of education, and to empower fans to spread the word themselves.

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.
