What is Social Fiction?  

The Social Fiction Conference provides a unique opportunity for analyzing important societal issues in the context of science fiction, fantasy, gaming and other related genres of entertainment. The conference is a co-curricular program designed to create space for festive activities and conversations about issues of identity, power, privilege, and oppression through the lens of our lived realities, and through the lens of various fictional worlds. The conference is a part of Crown College students' first year experience curriculum. In addition, there will be social events including gaming, digital storytelling, and cosplay.

This year we are excited to welcome Professor Ruth Wylie from Arizona State University and PJ Manney, writer and speaker on humanist and futurist topics, to our conference. Check back form more details!
