To celebrate the quincentenary edition of More's Utopia, published by Verso and Somerset House, Matt Beaumont and Gillian Darley explore how Utopia continues to inspire, and how utopia informs our visions of urban space and fictive possibilities.
Matthew Beaumont is a Professor of English Literature at UCL and the author of Nightwalking: A Nocturnal History of London and two books about utopian literature.
Gillian Darley is a writer, broadcaster, historian and architectural campaigner. Her seminal book Villages of Vision: A Study of Strange Utopias is published by Five Leaves Publications
