A Different Treatment of Sports in the Media: The Use of Parody in the French Program Les Guignols de l’Info

Sylvain Cubizolles

Making a Case for Sport as Avant-Garde

Robert E. Rinehart

parody and satire continue. Though many of the characteristics apply more generally to a modernist avant-garde, some critics—as I am doing—have proposed that this historical avant-garde exists, bringing it into a contemporary and future cultural space. Originally intended to be elitist, “today

Uncoincidentally, in “Howitzergate,” the State is embodied
