The special focus of the 2014 conference of The Utopian Studies Society is nonviolence and its relationship to utopianism. Our politics and culture are built around violence and war. As already Ralph W. Emerson observed, "[t]hat the project of peace should appear visionary to great numbers of sensible men; should appear laughable, even, to numbers; should appear to the grave and good-natured to be embarrassed with extreme practical difficulties, —is very natural." Moreover, nonviolent ends are often justified by violent means; we "fight" for justice and peace. Even the word "nonviolence"—like utopia—is defined by a lack; and likewise charged with idealism or wishful thinking.
