2011 SAMLA Session (abstracts by May 31): Avant-Garde Modernity: Revolutions in Poetry and Art from Romanticism to Postmodernism

updated: 
Thursday, April 28, 2011 - 1:35pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association special session, Nov 4-6 in Atlanta

This session will explore the theory and historiography of avant-garde artistic practices in literature and the visual arts. Papers tracing various lines of avant-garde lineage and intersections of poetics and art-making practices outside of the traditional delineations of the historical avant-garde are welcome, as well as papers that redefine the avant-garde as such, argue for the possibility or impossibility of a contemporary "avant-garde," examine the relationship of Modernity and/or Modernism with avant-gardism, or theorize the implications of the historical avant-garde for contemporary literary and artistic practice, criticism, and scholarship.
