For the 2007 Popular Culture Association (PCA)/American Culture Association
(ACA) Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, from April 4th to April 7th.
"Dissing Ability in German Popular Culture."
Papers are sought that look at the deconstruction of "ability" as the inherent
quality of "normalcy." Where in German language television, music, literature
and other cultural spheres do people with disabilities disassemble the thin
veneer of invulnerability and normalcy that these same media project? How does
such a phenomenon in German-speaking cultures compare with other cultures?
Please send 150-200 word abstracts by November 1, 2006 to Claude Desmarais via
