Popular Cultures/Cultures of the Popular: 1870-1945
 From the mid-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century critical
judgements about popular culture remained extremely diverse; theorists both
celebrated the emergence and preservation of popular cultural forms and
lamented the rise of new market-driven cultural commodities. Perhaps
because of such diversity, there are areas in which a thorough assessment
of the relationships within and between these positions remains to be
done. Popular culture was itself extremely diverse and developments in
critical studies have helped to produce a more detailed picture of the

Victorian "Freaks"
A Collection of Essays

The Nineteenth-Century is noted for its strict notions of the normative and its
anxieties about difference. "Freaks" and various kinds of freak shows
proliferated in this climate. Not only is freakishness associated with what
seems odd or fanciful, but also with a "turn of the mind," rebellion, or
critique. This collection aims to explore various disruptions caused by or
creating "freakishness" as it relates to social issues and social change.
