Doing Utopia and Communal Living in South Africa, Japan, and Jamaica, 1900-1950
Speaker: Robert Kramm (LMU Munich)

Moderators: Andreas Greiner (GHI) & Mario Peters (GHI)

Communes in the early twentieth century were an integral part of the modern world. Despite being located at the geographical, political, and social margins of modern society, these communes never existed in enclosed circles. They were both a niche and hub for radicals, revolutionaries and reformers, and their doing utopia in seeking a better world. This talk investigates communal life in various places of the non-Western world, including unionized South Africa, imperial Japan, and colonial Jamaica. And it discusses the possibilities of communal living and subjectivity beyond capital, empire, and state power.

This event will be recorded.
