Distrust, joy, curiosity. Attitudes towards travelling entertainment in the Baltic region, 1780-1880
Abstract [en]
This project examines local attitudes to travelling popular entertainment in the Baltic region 1780–1880. The purpose is to study the transnational flow of people, objects and thoughts which travelling entertainment meant in relation to local conceptions of societal order, using three heuristic, comprehensive attitudes: distrust, joy and curiosity. The project studies these attitudes on a discursive level through an analysis of a network of social relations, between 1) the resident small town population, which was both consumers of entertainment and suppliers of infrastructure and space for the entertainers, 2) the resident countryside population, which was short term visiting consumers of entertainment, 3) the entertainers themselves, and 4) local administrations and elites, with the task (sometimes self-assumed) to control the entertainment and maintain order. Our theoretical starting-points are taken from two lines of research: firstly, from research on cultural history on how societal order is produced continually through discursive and social practices, and secondly from research on social history on vagrant elements conceived as societal anomalies – deviating individuals whose vagrant characteristics carried tendencies of disorder and societal dissolution. The general aim of the project is thus to generate new knowledge and theoretical insights on the relation between conceived orders of society and transnational flows of people, objects and thoughts.
