About Christina Nelson
AboutSF 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 and Luc Besson for her dissertation. Antoine Volodine, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and Jean-Claude Dunyach are also possible contenders.

As AboutSF Volunteer Coordinator, Christina is continuing in the work of promoting and expanding the educational resources available through AboutSF. Please check the AboutSF.com website for regular updates from Ben on the happenings at the Center for the Study of Science Fiction.

She lives in Lawrence, Kansas.
