Posted on 11/28/2011 5:59:33 AM

The newest book by Mike Sell, Department of English, on the avant-garde, The Avant-Garde: Race Religion War, has just appeared on shelves, published by Seagull Books, a global publisher headquartered in Kolkota, India, and distributed in the U.S. by the University of Chicago Press.

Marking the completion of a six-year research project, The Avant-Garde: Race Religion War tells an unprecedented story of radical cultural production in the modern era. Rejecting the idea that the avant-garde is only about art and insisting that it is much more than a European phenomenon, Sell redefines the historical, geographical, ideological, disciplinary, and theoretical boundaries of avant-garde studies.
