University of Cyprus
We announce the presentation and participation of the “Utopia Project Archive” of the Athens School of Fine Arts in the
12th International Conference of the Utopian Studies Society (Europe)
During the conference, there will be an ongoing presentation of the “Utopia Project Archive” housed outside the Main Auditorium of the Central University Campus and will include video, a small book exhibit, and selected artworks.
The Utopian Studies Society is an interdisciplinary society that aims to co-ordinate and encourage the diverse work currently taking place on the subject of utopianism. Its members include people researching literature, philosophy, sociology, history, architecture, politics and anthropology.
The Society was established in 1988 by a group of British scholars, following an international conference on utopianism at New Lanark. It was re-launched, following the "Millennium of Utopias" conference at the University of East Anglia in June 1999.
The special focus of the 12th conference of the Society concerns the intersection between the question of Utopia, crisis, and justice. This year, the conference is hosted by the University of Cyprus and will be held at the University’s central campus.
