CALL FOR CIRCUS PAPERS
The 43rd Annual Convention of The Popular Culture Association & The American Culture Association
will take place
March 27-30, 2013
This will be the seventeenth meeting of the Popular Culture Association Circuses and Circus Culture interest group. We invite papers that explore the past and present of circus as performance art, historical analysis, and a unique form of popular culture. Circus, a continuously evolving tradition of live entertainment, lends itself to scholarship from many perspectives.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Menageries, Sideshows, Aerialists, Historic Relevance, Worlds Fair Exhibitions, Logistics of Circus Transportation, Clowning, Circus and Sideshow Documentary Screenings, Performance Art, P.T. Barnum and Other Promoters, Gaffs, Pitch Cards and so much more!
Our panels have been diverse and fascinating. We invite you to join us. Send a fifty word abstract of your paper by November 30, 2012 to: http://ncp.pcaaca.org and feel free to contact me at:
