BECOMING UTOPIAN is a book by Tom Moylan.
A dream of a better world is a powerful human force that inspires activists, artists, and citizens alike. In this book Tom Moylan — one of the pioneering scholars of contemporary utopian studies — explores the utopian process in its individual and collective trajectory from dream to realization. Drawing on theorists such as Fredric Jameson, Donna Haraway and Alain Badiou and science fiction writers such as Kim Stanley Robinson and China Miéville, BECOMING UTOPIAN develops its argument for sociopolitical action through studies that range from liberation theology, ecological activism, and radical pedagogy to the radical movements of 1968. Throughout, Moylan speaks to the urgent need to confront and transform the global environmental, economic, political and cultural crises of our time.
