Introduction: Circus and Its Others

Karen Fricker, Hayley Malouin

Abstract


In this introduction, co-editors Karen Fricker and Hayley Malouin provide an overview of the Circus and Its Others research project, of which this issue is the first major published outcome. Along with providing an overview of the twenty-three articles in the issue, they explore the emergence of contemporary circus and circus scholarship, the mythology of circus as subversive, and the elusiveness of the concept of "Other" that is at the centre of the issue and the project as a whole.
