Writing in 1899, Frederick Dolman argued in an article titled "Four-Footed Actors: About Some Well-Known Animals that Appear in the London and Provincial Stage" that the "growth of variety theatres and the decay of comic songs" had developed in "several kinds of diversion, not the least of which is furnished by the art of the animal-trainer" (The English Illustrated Magazine, Sep. 1899, 192, p. 521). Dolman was describing the large-scale entertainments starring animals that had taken over traditional spectator recreations for the last century in a manner not unlike the success of music-halls and professional sport.

'Science must begin with myths, and with the criticism of myths.'
Karl Popper, Conjectures and Refutations: The Growth of Scientific Knowledge (1963. London: Routledge, 2002), 66.

'Arts research needs to change direction, to look outwards, and investigate the audience not the texts. It needs to link up with sociology and psychology and public health, and create a body of knowledge about what the arts actually do to people. Until that happens, we cannot even pretend that we are taking the arts seriously.'
John Carey, What Good Are the Arts? (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2006), 167.

Book Reviews: The Pennsylvania Literary Journal is looking for academics with tenure-track appointments to write book reviews of recent titles that have been released in their field of interest. Several academic publishers, including Harvard UP, Pearson, Random House, Penguin, Cambridge UP, Duke UP, and SUNY, have agreed to send free books to writers in exchange for the reviews. Unlike with other journals - it is up to you to find the book you want to read and that is helpful for your current research and to send a specific request to PLJ that will be forwarded to the publisher (if the author is qualified to write about the topic).
