The history of mankind/humanities is marked by intercultural contacts among different societies, be it in development contexts such as trades, business, religious encounters, diplomatic and academic exchanges, or be in conflictual contexts such as war incarceration, human trafficking, forced migration, and annexations.

Propelled by globalization, the first decades of the 21st century witness a growing trend of old (i.e. face to face interactions) and new (i.e. digital/online interactions) forms of intercultural contacts in both development and conflictual contexts. Intercultural contacts consist of an interplay of interlocutors’ interactions, languages, communications, behaviours, and emotions that are dynamic, non-linear, and emergent.

Avant-Garde Humor and Political Aesthetics

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 - 2:37pm
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.
