Guest Editor: Dr. David A. Hatch, Utah Valley University

For a special issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities, we seek academic papers from a broad range of disciplines that address utopian/dystopian literature, historical attempts to create utopia, or the philosophical writings that underpin each of these efforts. We will also consider creative fictional engagements of utopian themes and creative non-fiction essays about utopia. In particular, this issue will explore the definitions of and boundaries between Utopia and Dystopia.
IH is published by the Humanities Education Research Association and is a refereed scholarly journal, published twice a year. Potential authors should note that this issue has been accepted for publication; we will not need to find a publisher. Inquiries are welcome, but only full manuscripts will be considered.
Submissions are due by March 1, 2010. Length: 6,000 words. Inquiries, double-spaced manuscripts, and creative works in any genre should be sent to davidahatch@live.com.
