‘Feeling Utopian on the Dancefloor: a very short history’


This seminar will offer a very brief history of utopianism in electronic dance music culture, from disco onwards, placing a particular emphasis on the affective dimensions of utopianism (through Bloch and Richard Dyer) and its aestheticization in music.
