Location: Doheny Memorial Library

    The concept of utopia has sparked the Western political imagination for 500 years, since the term was coined by Sir Thomas More to describe the ideal city. But how do we envision utopia in the context of 21st-century Los Angeles, with its particular environmental, social, and economic challenges, and a media and technological landscape that Sir Thomas More could scarcely have imagined? A panel of distinguished guests will discuss how the “ideal city” is envisioned in the art and media of today. 

    This event is presented as part of “500 Years of Utopia,” a series of events marking the December 2016 half-millennial anniversary of Sir Thomas More’s Utopia.
