Embodied Utopias
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Utopia has become a dirty word in recent scholarship on modernism, architecture, urban planning and gender studies. Many utopian designs now appear impractical, manifesting an arrogant disregard for the lived experiences of the ordinary inhabitants who make daily use of global public and private spaces. The essays in Embodied Utopias argue that the gendered body is the crux of the hopes and disappointments of modern urban and suburban utopias of the Americas, Europe and Asia. They reassess utopian projects - masculinist, feminist, colonialist, progressive - of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; they survey the dystopian landscapes of the present; and they gesture at the potential for an embodied approach to the urban future, to the changing spaces of cities and virtual landscapes. With contributors from a wide range of fields including architecture and urban planning, art history, media and cultural studies, communications, geography, philosophy, and gender studies, Embodied Utopias makes important contributions to the ongoing dialogue between cultural theory and the history and practice of architecture and urban design.
