H-Utopia, like the 25-year-old Society for Utopian Studies, is devoted
to discussion of utopianism in all its forms, from literary expression
to policy analysis to architectural criticism to activism. Our focus is
on the forms, contents, and influence of utopian/dystopian thinking.
The intellectual homes of our members include literature (in several
languages), politics and political theory, philosophy, psychology, the
arts, architecture, and urban planning. We currently maintain a
listserv, a website, a newsletter and a journal. While our intended
audience is primarily the existing community of scholars of utopias and
utopianism, our goal is to create a better online community that is
both an object of study (as it connects with our scholarly interest in
utopias) and a network of interested, active, interdisciplinary, and
rigorous scholars. H-Utopia is not a forum for advocating the creation
of utopia on earth; it is a forum for people who study the concepts of
utopia and utopianism.

H-UTOPIA is co-edited by Professors Peter Sands, U. Wisconsin-Milwaukee,
<> and Bryan Alexander, Centenary College
<>. It is advised by a board of scholars.

Like all H-Net lists, H-UTOPIA is moderated to edit out material that,
in the editors' opinion, is not germane to the list, involves technical
(such as subscription management requests), is inflammatory, or violates
evolving, yet common, standards of Internet etiquette. H-Net's procedure
for resolving disputes over list editorial practices is Article II,
Section 2.20
of our bylaws, located at:

Logs and more information can also be found at the H-Net Web Site,
