A dream of a better world is an influential human force that inspires artists, activists, and citizens alike. In Becoming Utopian (PDF) author Tom Moylan – one of the pioneering scholars of modern utopian studies – studies the utopian process in its individual and collective trajectory from dream to realization. Drawing on theorists such as Donna Haraway, Fredric Jameson, and Alain Badiou, and science fiction writers like Kim Stanley Robinson and China Miéville, Becoming Utopian: The Culture and Politics of Radical Transformation develops its argument for sociopolitical action through studies that range from ecological activism, liberation theology, and radical pedagogy to the radical movements of 1968. Through the textbook, Moylan speaks to the urgent need to confront and change the global environmental, political, economic, and cultural crises of our time.
