Logarithmic conformal field theory (logCFT) provides a family of quantum field theories with interesting physical and mathematical properties. We give an introduction to logCFT using the representation theory of the Virasoro algebra and its so-called staggered modules. We discuss the theory of Virasoro staggered modules and give a detailed example. We then discuss constructing such modules for the N=2 superconformal algebra and outline some of the challenges which occur in this generalisation.
