Avant-Garde Humor and Political Aesthetics

updated: 
Wednesday, April 17, 2019 - 2:37pm
PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

This panel explores the interconnection of avant-garde humor with forms of political action that defied conventional art and lifestyles. The significance of the comical aspect centers on a greater understanding of experimental practices as cases that unsettle the establishment. Literally meaning “advance guard” in French, the term holds a military sense that applies to artists and works characterized by their combative nature and their tendency to question the acceptability of norms and traditional aesthetic genres. Avant-garde artists made use of humor as a political weapon that destabilized the status quo by challenging bourgeois values and promoting radical reforms on a sociocultural level.

Call for Submissions: "Feminism and Academia Today: A Graduate Student Forum”

Journal of Feminist Scholarship

 

In its inaugural issue in Fall 2011, the Journal of Feminist Scholarship asked feminist scholars and activists to share their ideas about feminism and feminist scholarship today. Responses from Amrita Basu, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, Agnieszka Graff, and more composed a critical forum assessing the state of the field and pushing it into new directions. Now, eight years later, we ask the same question – this time, to graduate students engaging with feminist studies across all disciplines. What is the state of feminist scholarship today?
