Registration is now open!

Registration is now open for Utopia and Connected Communities: a one day conference at the British Library on the 7th of December!

 

You can register via our Eventbrite page. The deadline for registration is the 21st of November.

 

As we reach the end of the 500th anniversary year of the publication of Thomas More’s Utopia, we want to reflect on the relation between utopia and community as articulated, explored and problematised across the various utopian or utopia-centred activities of the Connected Communities programme over the past 12-18 months.

 

This one day conference at the British Library will consist of presentations, panels, provocations, short screenings, performances, dialogues, rants, theories, interdisciplinary or indisciplinary contributions, about the utopia constructed and/or critiqued in Connected Communities.

 

Funding

Travel and accommodation costs, where required, will be organised and met by the Connected Communities programme. Bursaries for contributing community partners will be available. We plan also to meet for a meal, informal discussion, networking the evening before the conference, and hope you can join us for that.
