ALS PhD Student Publishes Article

David Puthoff, PhD in American Literary Studies published article, “ ‘To Make Discoveries in Those Latitudes’: Utopia and Settler Colonialism in Equality; or, a History of Lithconia.” in Utopian Studies forthcoming issue, 32.1. This paper contributes to the call for decolonial utopian work by examining one of the earliest utopian texts in the United States, Equality; or, A History of Lithconia. Using a close reading drawing on colonial context, Puthoff argues that Equality criticizes management of the Euro-American settler state.
