CRSF 2022 is fast approaching, and this time we are hosting a hybrid event with online and in-person panels, workshops and so much more! After the success of our online conference held in 2021, we are excited for our next conference scheduled to take place on the 30th June – 1st July, virtually and in-person.

Tickets for this years event are available from the 16th of May 2022:


First held in 2011, CRSF is an annual conference hosted by the University of Liverpool designed to promote the research of speculative fictions, media and technologies (including but not limited to science fiction, fantasy and horror).

CRSF 2021 had the theme of ‘Survival’, and we heard fascinating keynotes from Dr Caroline Edwards and Prof Alex Goody on our online platform.

CRSF 2022 will span across two days and aims to shine the spotlight on the research of postgraduates and early career researchers working at the interdisciplinary boundaries of speculative fictions, theories and cultures. Our next conference theme and call for papers (CFP) will be released early 2023, so keep your eyes on our website and socials.
