Education and Utopia: Theory and Practice

full name / name of organization: 
Tyson Lewis, Montclair State University

The Society for Utopian Studies is holding its annual conference at Penn State College this year from October 20-23. In advance of a special issue of Utopian Studies on the theme of "utopia and education," I am putting together a panel on utopian pedagogies in theory and/or practice. Rather than education in utopian literature or utopian literature as educational process, I am interested in research that focuses on education itself as containing a utopian dimension and pedagogies/educational experiments that embody, enact, or elicit utopian possibilities.

Please submit a brief 100-250 word abstract of your proposal to me by no later May 1st.
