Abstract

Today, Monday 22nd February, is the beginning of the 8th LSE Space for Thought Literary Festival. To mark the five hundred year anniversary of Thomas More’s formative work, the theme of this year’s festival is ‘Utopia’ with a series of free exciting events being held at LSE exploring questions of the imagination, dreams, nostalgia and the quest for a better world. To reflect on the festival and the ideas it will be discussing, Michael Caines, Assistant Editor of the Times Literary Supplement, introduces us to More’s Utopia, its legacies and continued relevance to contemporary utopian – and dystopian – thought.
