Towards a True Avant-Garde Poetics

While conventional notions of the avant-garde suggest work which is
groundbreaking, confrontational and even impenetrable, this panel seeks to
investigate poetry and poetics which adhere to a narrower sense of the
termâ€"namely, Peter Bürger's conception of the avant-garde as work which
"demand[s] that art becomes practical once again," or returns art to the
praxis of everyday life. Understood this way, Bürger's avant-garde
aesthetic changes the ways in which an audience interacts with art, calling
for personal action, and provides new, democratized inroads to the creative
process.

“As the capitalist mode of production extends, so also does the utilization
of the refuse left behind by production and consumption. Under the heading
of production we have the waste products of industry and agriculture, under
that of consumption we have both the excrement produced by man’s natural
metabolism and the form in which useful articles survive after use has been
made of them.” Marx, Capital, vol. 3

In his "Challenge Sermon" delivered at St. Paul’s Cross on November 26, 1559, Bishop John Jewel
argued that the Church Fathers were the true architects of the Christian religion and that the
English people would no longer be subjected to the sort of medieval tampering that had led the
one true Church astray. "The first five hundred years of the church," he would argue, "are worth
more than the whole thousand that followed afterward." For this collection, we are seeking
essays that address the topic of the Church Fathers in early modern English culture. Topics
addressed may include (but will not be limited to) the rhetorical, political, ethical, and material
