An Interdisciplinary Study of Utopias and Dystopias. Because students live in a world with both positive and negative aspects, a
study of utopias and dystopias in literature and in history will clarify their
understanding of the world they occupy today as well as the world they may

utopia gone amiss; or a combination of the two.l
