I saw this ad during an NFL game some weeks ago, and I can’t get it out of my head. Utopia? Anti-utopia? You be the judge. Note that the video’s description describes the island as “the perfect party island.” Hmmm.

Stephanie Stripling, having volunteered at the last meeting of the Society for Utopian Studies, has come through with a reboot of the utopian bibliography, which was traditionally part of the Utopus Discovered package, but is now its own entity of sorts. Stephanie has put my blog-designing skills to shame, as you’ll see, but I’m okay with it.
Discoveries: A Bibliography for the Utopian Inclined
Utopus Discovered is proud to bring you a re-inauguration of the most(ly) informal newsletter of the Society for Utopian Studies. Now edited by Alex Hall of Kent State University, Utopus is back! In this issue: “How [Tom Moylan] Came to Utopia,” “In Memory of Art Lewis,” and Miscellaneotopia presents Dystopia you can drink! Okay, you can’t really drink it.
