    This week takes as its focus two texts in dialogue: Edward Bellamy’s (American) socialist utopia, Looking Backward: 2000-1887 (1888), and William Morris’ (English) socialist utopia, News From Nowhere (1890). Building on our discussions of last week, around the nature of manifestos and the utopias they imagine, this week looks at the ways in which these two men imagine the future, the road to it, and how people live once they have arrived in it.
