The early modern period produced a wealth of travel writing, whether the travel in question was to the New World beyond the seas, a planet across the skies, or another imagined or idealised location. This conference will address the inter-related nature of utopia and travel-writing, and explore representations of other worlds from the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. How did the discovery of the New World, renewed belief in the plurality of worlds, and the utopian impulse to create a new world influence early modern literature? How did these influences interact and develop?
