Calvert, Dave (2012) Carnival of the Mundane: Red Oktober at England’s National Tramway Museum. In: PSi #18, 27th June - 1st July 2012, University of Leeds. (Unpublished)
Abstract

This paper considers the performative dimension of Red Oktober, an annual gathering of classic Eastern European cars at the National Tramway Museum. I argue that this combination of rural England and communist memorabilia, characterised by the nostalgic, the mundane and the imagined, acts as an unlikely modern carnival.
