This month's event will provide a sweeping overview of different attempts by
Iowans to create their own form of utopia, featuring the Iowa Pioneer
Phalanx, Salburia, the Amana Colonies, the Icarian Communities, the Cydesdale
Colony, Communia, and many more. The presentation will provide some details about
specific communal groups, and a general overview of different communal
movements in American history and how they influenced community builders on the
Iowa frontier, and beyond.
About the presenter: Peter Hoehnle is an Amana native who received his graduate degrees from Iowa
State University. He has published widely on American communal societies,
including volumes on Amana and the Shakers, served as President of the Communal
Studies Association and as a past editor of the journal Communal Societies.
