"Popular Entertainment Studies," vol. 1 no 2 has just been published. The issue can be accessed at: http://www.newcastle.edu.au/journal/popular-entertainment-studies/ and needs no login or registration.
It contains a cornucopia of fascinating research and comment: from circus music and its significance, the talking and singing clowns of the 19th century American circus, popular music and subversiveness in Argentina, to karaoke performance, slapstick comedy and the spectacle of bleeding in professional wrestling and football. There are also a couple of delightful excursions into some of the byways of popular entertainments by Laurence Senelick and Joseph Donohue.
The Call for Articles to be included in Volume 2, number 1 (2011) is also now current. Details about the journal, its aims and scope can be found at the above web address.
