CFP: make, unmake, remake

Calls for Submissions

The Society for Utopian Studies invites creative and scholarly responses to its conference theme–“make, unmake, remake”– with a particular interest in panels that offer interdisciplinary approaches to shared questions in utopian studies, including those that speak to post-pandemic life and renewal. Submissions are due by May 22, 2022.

Topics might include:

  • “Tinkering towards utopia” vs. large scale utopian plans
  • Arts and crafts, “craftivism,” and sustainability
  • Reparations for slavery and other historical atrocities
  • Utopian labor; labor in dystopian times
  • Building from the ashes / post-disaster and post-apocalyptic re-building
  • Utopia as apology and social repair
  • Revision, recursivity, play, and experimentation in utopian thought
  • Hope in dystopian times
  • Preparing, preserving, rebuilding, resilience
  • Local responses to global change
