Editorial and front matter: Colloquy, Issue 14, December 2007 - The Futures of Utopia, guest edited by Robert Savage
journal contributionposted on 21.05.2017 by Colloquy
Any type of content formally published in an academic journal, usually following a peer-review process.
This special issue on utopianism, dystopianism and science fiction emerged from "Imagining the Future," a conference organised by the Centre for Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies, Monash University, with generous financial assistance from the Australian Research Council. Some of the contributions to that conference have already appeared in Imagining the Future: Utopia and Dystopia, edited by Andrew Milner, Matthew Ryan and Robert Savage (Melbourne: Arena Publications, 2006). This special issue combines other papers from the conference with fresh contributions addressing the same themes. The vibrancy and diversity of recent utopian thought is reflected in the papers themselves, which range across the fields of philosophy, literary criticism, film studies, and architectural theory.
