Utopia / "N. an imagined perfect place or state of things from Gk ou 'not' + topos 'place' " (OED)

500 Years after the publication of Sir Thomas More's Utopia, the idea of utopia remains a current one. It is manifest in a range of domains, including the apocalypitic ideas of ISIS, the surge of interest in "dystopia," and even the idea of human rights. The 2016-17 "utopia" thematic will be discussed in related courses, lectures, seminars, and outreach activities. It follows upon CGHR 2015-16 thmatic: Ruins.
