Abstracts (300 words) or completed papers (20 minutes max) are invited for a proposed panel on "Utopia and Apocalypse" at the 2017 Society for Utopian Studies conference in Memphis, November 8-12. For the panel, I will give preference to papers that explicitly explore connections between utopia and apocalypse. I invite examinations of “utopia” in any of its flavors—utopia proper, dystopia, ambiguous or critical utopia, anti-utopia, etc. Papers not chosen for the panel will be forwarded to the general conference submission pool. Please send submissions by midnight EDT on Friday, August 11 to: Gib Prettyman, cgp3@psu.edu.  Apologies for the short notice.
