Society for Utopian Studies 28th Annual Meeting
30 October 2003 to 2 November 2003, San Diego, California,
United States

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.
