Friday, 1 July 2016 at Somerset House (London)
In Archæologies of the Future, Fredric Jameson wonders: “can we invent a way of reading Thomas More's Utopia (1516) so as to recover something of the shock and freshness of its elegant new Latin for the first European readers?” This symposium is both interdisciplinary investigation provoked by this question, and a celebratory reading for the 500th anniversary of More’s text.
