Founded in 1975, the Society for Utopian Studies is an international, interdisciplinary association devoted to the study of utopianism in all its forms. Scholars and practitioners representing a wide variety of disciplines and endeavors are active in the association and approach utopian studies from such diverse backgrounds as American studies, architecture, the arts, classics, cultural studies, economics, engineering, environmental studies, gender studies, history, languages and literature, philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology and urban planning. The Society encourages participation from those involved in communal living and other utopian arrangements.
The Society publishes a journal, Utopian Studies, and a newsletter, Utopus Discovered. The latter contains information on upcoming conferences and workshops, as well as a bibliography of recent publications in the field.
The twenty-eighth annual meeting of the Society for Utopian Studies will be held at the Bahia Resort Hotel in San Diego, California, October 30 - November 2, 2003. The Conference Chair is Paul Majkut (National University). If you wish to organize a panel or present a paper, please send an abstract of no more than 100 words by May 30, 2003 to the address listed.
Annual meetings of the Society for Utopian Studies are ideal occasions for intellectual interchange in a cooperative, non-competitive, congenial, and convivial environment. At each meeting, the Society presents the Arthur O. Lewis Award for the best paper by a junior scholar given at the previous annual meeting and the Eugenio Battisti Award for the best article in each volume of Utopian Studies.
