Public Relations as Promotional Culture

When Wednesday 26 April, 5 – 6.30pm
Where Room G17, Robert Webster Building, UNSW Kensington

In this seminar, I discuss the theoretical implications of understanding public relations as part of promotional culture, taking analysis beyond the organizational and into the social, cultural and political world. I reflect on how conceptualizing these dimensions of public relations work opens up new and sometimes provocative ways of thinking about public relations as a profession, an organizational function and a cultural industry. I draw on current examples of public relations work to illustrate the points made.
