CFP: MOB/RIOT CULTURE & PUBLIC PROTEST IN THE 21st CENT.

New technologies, new ways of communication, and, in some cases, new approaches to old problems and debates have emerged with the new millennium. With these changes, old tensions resurface and new conflicts arise. The past decade, and more recently in these past months, we have witnessed how these tensions create a variety of public protests and riots. This proposed collection aims to examine these acts: how and why they were initiated; how they have impacted their respective local, national, or even global communities; and how individual citizens, various groups and organizations, and even governments have responded to these acts.
