The Protest Issues and Actions section of the Popular Culture Associationseeks proposals for its paper sessions at the 32nd annual PCA conference to be held in Toronto March 13-16, 2002.
Any disciplinary perspective may be used to examine dissent, past or present, with either a local, regional, national or international focus.
Topics covered in a broad interpretation of protest include analysis of groups; the impact of an individual (leader, philosopher, hero, etc); the history of a particular event or action; counter-protests; as well
as the literary, musical, theatrical, artistic, philosophical, rhetorical, political and sociological aspects of any dissent. Recent papers have covered the rhetorical analysis of environmental groups, quilts as protest, labor strikes in the 1930s and civil rights protest inthe 1940s, women's 19th century dress reform and the songs of the suffragettes, protest poetry, resistance to apartheid by South African musicians, and labor struggles in Peru, Cuba and Mexico.
