Journal of Avant-Garde Studies

Published twice annually, the Journal of Avant-Garde Studies is an interdisciplinary forum for critical discussion of the experimental, the outrageous, and the unclassifiable in the arts and literature, from the heyday of modernism to today. The perspective is global, the theoretical approaches are diverse, and the eligible subjects range from the famous to the forgotten.
JAGS seeks to broaden and enrich our history of the vanguard.

Review Quote
“Modernist studies has been a booming field for the past twenty-five years, but only now with the Journal of Avant-Garde Studies will we finally benefit from a forum specifically designed to look into the core, the engine without which modernism would simply not exist. The closer we look, the more we'll see that the avant-garde is the seed from which the mighty oak of modernism grew.”
– Jed Rasula, Professor of English, University of Georgia, USA
All interested in 20th-century art, modernism and the avant-garde movements. Relevant also for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in art history, cultural history, literary studies, and transnational studies as well as an international audience of scholars and museum experts.
