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.
Our 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.
There is no formal membership or subscription. If you would like to be added to our e-mailing list, please send your details to the USS Secretary, Lorna Davidson at email@example.com.
The Society will hold its 10th annual conference in Porto, Portugal, 1-4 July 2009.
The conference is hosted by the University of Porto.
