The Residency Program integrates Miami coursework with community engagement and active citizenship, offering a substantial way for students to build relationships and trust with the Over-the-Rhine (Cincinnati) community. The program thereby resists the notion that communities are mere laboratories for learning on the part of students and teachers. Students don’t just study a neighborhood: they actually become part of it. As a result, students are transformed in powerful and long-lasting ways.

For the first half of the nineteenth century, Ohio was a hotbed of utopian activity, both secular and religious. Ohio was the frontier, and there were some very serious reactions to industrialization, persecution, and general awakenings (great and otherwise) at play. This exhibition of photographs represent a search for the residue of these communal experiments.

While intentional communities still exist, “utopia” is more of a thought exercise than a reality, a way to expose what lacks, and a way to play with what is possible. That many of these utopian communities failed is informative, that they existed at all is substantial. Utopian thought can go wrong, we know, but it does not mean that very human impulse towards creating something a bit better, be ignored. Roll, then, on.
