This volume brings together articles on utopia and dystopia in a breadth of disciplines—history, literature, gender studies, political science, sociology, anthropology, and Native American Studies.

Utopia and dystopia are modes and resonances present in all parts of the world, not just Europe and white North America. Equally, utopian and dystopian thought and practice are and have always been gendered. Utopia, memory, and temporality often intersect in strange and surprising ways.

Three dimensions are thus central to the enterprise undertaken in this volume:

- The relationship between utopia/dystopia and time/memory
- The focus on Europe and areas outside Europe at the same time
- The gendered analysis of utopia/dystopia

Contributors to this volume include prominent experts in fields as varied as Development Studies, Cultural Studies, Women’s Studies, and Literature.
