At a time when the world seems dystopian, this session will reorient our focus towards what makes UTOPIA. In the process, we will delve into history, ethics, and sociology to discover what human flourishing looks like and how best to promote it.
Each week, participants will add new elements to their vision of utopia and negotiate between the ideal and the possible. Specifically, we will discuss how government, city planning, education, and art can all contribute to creating both a fair and meaningful society.
By the end of the trimester, participants will have a richer understanding of their socio-political context and will have the tools to critique what is dysfunctional and save what is valuable in our own society.
WEEKLY MEETINGS: NEW DATES: OCT. 11-DEC. 8
