Utopian Visions – Intentional Communities in Australia


Our next guest is an author, awarded historian, Honourary Associate Professor, Adjunct Lecturer and quite probably one of the world’s foremost scholars on communal living. 

His 1987 PhD thesis was a study of communal groups and associated social movements, and ever since Dr William Metcalf has been researching, visiting and documenting Australia’s ‘intentional communities’, or ‘communalism’ as it is sometimes known.

William Metcalf, thank you for coming on air and a very warm welcome to The Thursday Daily… 


Dr Metcalf has published numerous books on this subject available here.
