How have Americans envisioned more perfect worlds, and what have they done to bring their ideas to life? This course examines such thoughts and experiments, with special attention to the optimistic heyday of nineteenth-century communal utopianism. We explore how reformers thought about individualism and community, gender and sex, charisma and faith, work and leisure, technology and nature, to create environments that they believed would allow human beings to best flourish.
