The Protest Issues and Actions section of the Popular Culture Association (PCA) seeks proposals for its annual paper sessions at the 2006 PCA Conference in Atlanta, Georgia April 12-15, 2006. Any disciplinary perspective may be used to examine dissent, past or present, in a local, regional, national or international setting. Using a broad interpretation of dissent, papers may focus on works by specific writers or artists, the history of a specific protest action or movement, as well as the rhetoric, politics, impact and sociology of specific protest movements. Past topics have included protests by environmental, antiwar, African-American, Latin American, German right wing, animal, womens and gay rights groups, and the use of marches, symbols, poetry, dance, theater, ritual and music in protest.
