Second Call for Papers: The Promised Land: Utopia and Dystopia in Contemporary British-Jewish Culture

Judaism can be seen as a utopian religion: the Promised Land will be an ideal place and the messiah will bring about an ideal world. Read as literature, the Bible offers one of the principal sources of utopian thought in Britain and the Western World.

Challenging utopia, there is also a British-Jewish imaginative paradigm of dystopia.
