On May 11th 2018 the University of Sheffield hosted a conference to rethink the history of popular entertainment. In cooperation with the National Fairground and Circus Archive and under the initiative of Circus250, this event was part of a year round calendar of events at the University of Sheffield. With this conference we investigated the role of circus in history and invited scholars and circus practitioners to present their work.
The conference was funded by the Royal Historical Society and the Arts and Humanities Postgraduate Forum.
