Reinventing Utopian Spaces
This volume brings together explorations of different aspects of Utopia studied from contemporary perspectives. Its main asset is its diversity and the broad scope of themes it covers and discusses. From literary utopias to media and philosophy, it offers a vista of approaches and contexts that testify to the book’s interdisciplinary character. In the words of Lyman Towers Sargent, a leading authority on Utopia and Utopian Studies, an interview with whom is at the same time an Introduction to this collection, “Utopia has universal relevance, but the way it is applied and operationalized varies from country to country and over time.” Professor Sargent’s observation can also serve as the leitmotif of the book and the current research on Utopia, its endless possibilities and varieties.
