Utopianism, social dreaming, can be both a fundamental component and a critical way of understanding the complex totality of economic, cultural, political, social, and personal life. As it projects or interprets social values and practices that are both critical of and better than the status quo, a utopian method can be a dynamic tool in the processes of socio-political transformation.
Aims & Objectives:
• to offer a module that studies utopian theory, thought, expression, and practice;
• to develop an advanced understanding of the nature and form(s) of Utopia;
• to develop an advanced understanding of the utopian method in the process of social critique and design.
