Welcome to the Online Encyclopedia of Literary Neo-Avant-Gardes

Welcome to the Online Encyclopedia of Literary Neo-Avant-Gardes or OELN. Its continuing mission is to explore the strange, new worlds of experimental literatures which show affinity with the aims and strategies of the historical avant-gardes, but which also transform them in dialogue with new political and technological contexts. The encyclopedia aims to make literary neo-avant-gardes from around the world more visible and accessible for scholars, students, and readers. The chapters of the OELN are divided into four sections: Authors, Concepts, Movements, and Works. In the Introduction, the editors introduce the concept of neo-avant-garde and its theoretical background in avant-garde theory.
