Protest Issues & Actions

All Proposals & Abstracts Must Be Submitted Through The PCA Database.
Please submit a proposal to only one area at a time. Exceptions and rules


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 studies of consumer boycotts, union organizing in the 1930s, specific protests by antiwar, environmental, African-American, Native-American, Latin American, animal rights, women’s and gay rights groups, as well as examinations of how marches, slogans, symbols, poetry, music, dance, theater and art play a role in protest.

Submit 250 word abstracts to the PCA Database. Abstracts should include title of paper and your contact information (University affiliation and address).
