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.
The Department of English, at the Faculty of Philology, University of Banja Luka (Bosnia and Herzegovina), in cooperation with the University of Leuven are pleased to announce the fourth conference on English language and literary studies CELLS: Beyond Hermeneutics: Challenging Traditional Approaches to Literary and Language Studies.
The conference will focus on the dynamics of culture and its representations in the fields of Language, Linguistics, Literature and Translation. It aims to emphasize cultural intersections and explore ways in which such intersections could be conceptualized, critiqued or disrupted and ultimately reconstructed. We invite contributions on the theoretical and analytical frameworks that examine cultural intersections, as well as those which explore the practical and pedagogical implications of such intersections.
