Keynote Panel Debate

June 27-30, 2023 I Lund, Sweden

Lund University, AF-Borgen


Keynote panel debate, June 28th, 3.15-5.00 PM

Utopian and dystopian thinking:
Hope, despair and the shaping of the future

What is the role of utopian and dystopian thinking today? Is there even room for both utopias and dystopias in today’s public discussion? Do we need utopias in order to shape a somewhat brighter future? Or are dystopian imageries necessary in order to understand the seriousness of the wide range of global crises we are facing today?

These and many more questions will be discussed and debated at the keynote panel debate “Utopian and dystopian thinking: Hope, despair and the shaping of the future”. We are delighted to have been able to bring together three wonderful scholars for this debate: Professor Peter Fleming, University of Technology, Sydney (author of The Worst Is Yet To Come: A Post-Capitalist Survival Guide), Professor Sylwia Chrostowska, York University, Toronto (author of Utopia in the Age of Survival Between Myth and Politics), and Craig Thompson, Wisconsin School of Business as the panel moderator.
