Event Description

an interdisciplinary symposium on the 500th anniversary of Thomas More's Utopia
26 June 2016
Clare College, Cambridge
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 an interdisciplinary investigation provoked by this question, and a celebratory reading for the 500th anniversary of More’s text.

Thirkill Room, Clare College, Cambridge
10 am - 5:30 pm
Registration £ 40 / 20 -- register here by June 10
Fee includes symposium talks, lunch, and evening concert

Featuring a new work by Louis d'Heudieres
Round Church on Bridge Street, Cambridge
7:30 pm
Tickets £ 10 / 5 -- reserve tickets here
Concert free for all symposium participants
