University of Alabama in Huntsville (English)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 14, 2019

In 1974, in the shadow of the Vietnam War and amidst the economic and political retrenchments of post-1968, Ursula K. Le Guin published The Dispossessed. The novel’s radical innovation of the narrative utopia, with its unblinking acknowledgment of the form’s conceptual as well as practical limits, paradoxically revitalized and reactivated utopia’s uncompromising social vocation for an emphatically anti-utopian era.
