The conference, held at the Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas da Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, combined with the 500th anniversary of the publication of Thomas More’s Utopia.

Dr Howells spoke on the topic: “In Our Hands” which is also the title of his installation/exhibition currently on show at Somerset House in London.

While in Lisbon, he was also able to catch up with his former PhD student and CMCI graduate Dr Joaquim Negreiros, with whom he has recently signed a contract for a third edition of their Visual Culture, due in 2017 from Polity Press.
