The Uses of Utopia

    19:30, Sun 26th June 2016 at The Round Church
    Summer Vacation

    In Fredric Jameson's Archaeologies of the Future, he writes: “can we invent a way of reading Thomas More's Utopia (1516) so as to recover something of the shock and freshness of its elegant new Latin for the first European readers?”

    On June 26, we will be holding as symposium as an interdisciplinary investigation provoked by this question, and a celebratory reading for the 500th anniversary of More’s text. The symposium will include an evening performance at the Round Church, featuring a brand new staged work by composer Louis d'Heudieres, contributions from visual artists, and other performance events.
