Science Fiction Research Association (SFRA) is the oldest professional organization for the study of science fiction and fantasy literature and film. Founded in 1970, SFRA was organized to improve classroom teaching; to encourage and assist scholarship; and to evaluate and publicize new books and magazines dealing with fantastic literature and film, teaching methods and materials, and allied media performances. Among the membership are people from many countries-students, teachers, professors, librarians, futurologists, readers, authors, booksellers, editors, publishers, archivists, and scholars in many disciplines. Academic affiliation is not a requirement for membership. This website provides information to prospective members, current members and the general public, including membership information, calls for papers, notable achievements in the field, schedules for upcoming conferences and other relevant announcements. It also contains an online archive of the SFRA Review, as well as other documents and materials related to the association.
