Historically, public relations research has been dominated by organisational interests, treating the profession as a function to help organisations achieve their goals, and focusing on practice and processes first and foremost. Such research is valuable in addressing how public relations can be used more effectively by organisations and institutions, but has tended to neglect the consequences of the practice on the social world in which those organisations operate. This edited collection adds momentum to the emergent interest in the relationship between public relations, society and culture by bringing together a wide range of alternative theoretical and methodological approaches, including anthropology, storytelling, pragmatism and Latin American studies. The chapters draw on insights from a variety of disciplines including sociology, cultural studies, post-colonialism, political economy, ecological studies, feminism and critical race theory. Empirical contributions illustrate theoretical arguments with narratives and interview extracts from practitioners, resulting in an engaging text that will provide inspiration for scholars and students to explore public relations in new ways. Public Relations, Society and Culture makes an essential contribution to a range of scholarly fields and illustrates the relevance of public relations to matters beyond its organisational function. It will be highly useful to students and scholars of public relations as well as cultural studies, ethnicity/‘race’ communication, media studies, development communication, anthropology, and organisational communication. This insightful book will make a significant contribution to debates about the purpose and practice of public relations in the new century.

This book argues that public relations is not merely an organizational tool, but a powerful influence on social and political life. From carefully considered communication by multinational corporations, to government campaigns that manage public opinion, to the self-promotion of celebrities via social media, public relations is central to our individual and collective lives. Understanding Public Relations introduces a socio-cultural approach to public relations as a way of analysing the growing importance of public relations in its social, cultural and political contexts. Encouraging a deeper and more critical understanding of its influence on society, Lee Edwards: Explores public relations in relation to contemporary debates around promotional culture, discourse, globalisation, democracy and power Considers how public relations frames vital discussions of race, gender, class and ethics Brings theory to life with a range of case studies, including YouTube vlogging, the global fair trade movement and the 2016 EU referendum in the UK Both accessible and provocative, this is an invaluable resource for students and researchers exploring public relations theory, critical public relations, strategic communication and promotional culture.

Immer häufiger stellt sich die Frage nach der Zukunft und der Bedeutung von Public Relations, dabei werden die Antworten im Rückgriff auf wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse und auf die praktizierten Normen sittlichen Verhaltens gesucht. Es verwundert folglich nicht, daß für PR Primate des "Sollens" gefordert werden, um Defizite in der Praxis zu überwinden. PR-Ethik soll PR zu mehr Professionalismus verhelfen, ihr eine neue Perspektive öffnen und mehr Glaubwürdigkeit nach innen wie nach außen gewährleisten.Die Herbert-Quandt-Stiftung hat diese Entwicklung zum Anlaß genommen, Wissenschaftler aus PR-bezogenen Disziplinen zur Diskussion von Ethik-Fragen einzuladen. Schwerpunktthemen waren philosophische und ethische Aspekte von PR, Organisation und Management, kommunikationswissenschaftliche Ansätze und denkbare Folgen des Nachdenkens über PR-Ethik für Praxis und PR-Forschung.

When initially published in 2005, the two-volume Encyclopedia of Public Relations was the first and most authoritative compilation of the subject. It remains the sole reference source for any library serving patrons in business, communication, and journalism as it explores the evolution of the field with examples describing the events, changing practices, and key figures who developed and expanded the profession. Reader’s Guide topics include Crisis Communications & Management, Cyberspace, Ethics, Global Public Relations, Groups, History, Jargon, Management, Media, News, Organizations, Relations, Reports, Research, and Theories & Models. Led by renowned editor Robert L. Heath, with advisory editors and contributors from around the world, the set is designed to reach a wide array of student readers who will go on to serve as opinion leaders for improving the image and ethics of the practice. The Second Edition continues to explore key challenges facing the profession, such as earning the trust and respect of critics and the general public. Much greater emphasis and space will be placed on a theme that was just emerging when the First Edition appeared: the Internet and social media as public relations tools. International coverage and representation has been greatly expanded, as well. Finally, biographies (which are now widely available on the Web) have been deleted to give room to areas of enhanced coverage, and biographical material are included where appropriate within the context of topical entries. However, a long entry on women pioneers in public relations has been included as an appendix.

Kann Image Gegenstand einer Public Relations-Wissenschaft sein? Es lohnt sich wieder, sich mit Public Relations zu beschäftigen. Das Tätig keitsfeld Public Relations ist zwar noch immer nicht ganz unangefochten, weder in der Wissenschaft, noch bei den Medien. Auch in der Praxis selbst gibt es nicht wenige Öffentlichkeitsarbeiter , die unter dem schlechten Image ihres Berufes lei den. Aber die Zeichen mehren sich, daß wir es bei diesem kommunikativen Tätigkeitsfeld bald mit einem attraktiven, ja vielleicht einem der attraktivsten Untersuchungsgegenstände in den Kommunikationswissenschaften zu tun haben werden. Der Bedarf an PR nimmt zu, je intensiver Organisationen die Notwendigkeit von Kontakt und Austausch mit der Öffentlichkeit erfahren. In einem Gesell schaftssystem, das sich durch Kommunikation konstituiert, ist PR zentrales Kommunikationsinstrument -und damit existentiell für jede Institution, jede Un ternehmung, jede Organisation. Entsprechend stark wächst der Bedarf an erfahrenen PR-Praktikern; ent sprechend groß ist der Andrang zu PR-Lehrgängen, PR-Fachstudien oder Universitätsseminaren mit PR-Thematik. Bei vielen Nachwuchskräften mag die neuartige Karriere eine Rolle spielen, bei nicht wenigen aber auch das oft bekun dete Motiv, in einem sinnfalligen sozialkommunikativen Beruf zu arbeiten. Den jungen Menschen steht der Sinn danach, in Organisationen daran mitzu wirken, daß deren Anliegen, Zwecke und Handlungen ihren Öffentlichkeiten ein sichtig und nachvollziehbar werden; auch, daß deren Ziele sich den Erwartungen der Öffentlichkeiten und den Erfordernissen der Gesellschaft anpassen.

This book brings together a broad and diverse range of new and radical approaches to public relations focussing on the increasingly vital role that visual, sensory and physical elements factors play in shaping communication. Engaging with recent developments in critical and cultural theories, it outlines how non-textual and non-representational forces play a central role in the efficacy and reception of public relations. Challenging the dominant accounts of public relations which center on the purely representational uses of text and imagery, the book critiques the suitability of accepted definitions of the field and highlights future directions for conceptualizing strategic communication within a multi-sensory environment. Drawing on the work of global researchers in public relations, visual culture and communication, design and cultural theory, it brings a welcome inter-disciplinary approach which pushes the boundaries of public relations scholarship in a global cultural context. This exciting analysis will be of great interest to public relations scholars, advanced students of strategic communication, as well as communication researchers from cultural, media and critical studies exploring PR as a socio-cultural phenomenon.

Der Umgang mit Ungewissheit und Unsicherheit besitzt in allen Wissenschaftsdisziplinen und -kulturen hohe Relevanz. Insgesamt zeichnet sich die Tendenz ab, dass "schwach strukturierte" Szenarien sowohl an Bedeutung als auch an "Erfolg" gewinnen und Konzepte, die sich gezielte Inkaufnahme und Umgang mit Unsicherheit auszeichnen, aufgrund höherer Geschwindigkeit und Flexibilität häufig "deterministischeren" Konzepten überlegen sind. Vor diesem Hintergrund stellt sich die Frage nach eienr fachübergreifenden Sichtweiseauf das Kozept der Ungewissheit, insbesondere auch vor dem Hintergrund unterschiedlicher internationaler, disziplinärer und geographischer Kulturen. Dieses Fachbuch beleuchtet das gleichsam grundlegende wie zukunftsweisende Thema Ungewissheit auf hohem wissenschaftlichen Niveau, wichtige Impulse für die multi-, inter- und transdisziplinäre Bearbeitung des Forschungsfeldes werden diskutiert.​

You may be a senior executive wondering how to engage hundreds or thousands of employees in your vision, strategy or the transformation of the business; or a specialist in HR, communication and change, tasked with the challenge of 'aligning and mobilising' your people. In either case, you no longer want compliant people, you want individuals who will engage their creativity at work. For their part, engaged employees want a say in their work and in how the business changes. The Chief Engagement Officer explores a management philosophy which recognises the value of opening up decision making to the right groups to improve the quality of decisions and change, accelerate execution and broaden ownership. John Smythe asks what the concept of engagement means for employer and employee; tests whether and how it is different from internal communication and provides a practical framework for those who want to engage colleagues but need advice based on applied experience. The book includes a tapestry of reports from organisations who are engaging their employees to drive performance and change. The author demonstrates how powerful models, developed from his work at SmytheDorwardLambert, his time as an organisational fellow with McKinsey and Company, and his consultancy with Engage for Change, can be used to take this process forward in any organisation. The Chief Engagement Officer is a highly readable guide to the revolution that is needed in employee communication and organisational leadership from one of the most experienced and well-regarded experts on employee communication.

Globalization, i.e. the spatio-temporal processes of change leading to a transformation in the organization of human affairs, is said to have started as long ago as the end of the 15th century. This first wave of globalization was subsequently followed by two others. The third wave of globalization, which began after 2000, has made the world noticeably smaller. In fact, technological innovations have sharply increased the availability of new modes and channels of communication. As a result, the sharing of knowledge and information all around the world has substantially increased and this has prompted the emergence of new ‘globalizing genres’. In addition, it has led to the implementation of a series of adaptations to the existing genres, in an attempt to guarantee their success and survival in an era which celebrates the need for a ‘global reach’. In order to investigate these ‘winds of change’ in generic studies, the present volume combines a historical perspective with a detailed survey of different contemporary discourses and genres situated in an array of contexts of interaction. Accordingly, the empirically informed analyses of discourses and genres do not only focus on the textual, intertextual and interdiscursive features, but also on the institutional, organizational, professional and socio-cultural settings, i.e. all those aspects which show how genres reflect changing disciplinary and professional cultures. As a consequence, and in line with the multi-faceted nature of genre, different reading paths can be followed in the present volume. On the one hand, it is possible to make a distinction between professional, institutional and academic contexts. On the other hand, the concept of change will also be investigated by focusing on oral, written and web-mediated genres. Throughout the volume, the different reading paths aim at highlighting the influence of the three waves of globalization on genre evolution, thus contributing to providing evidence in favour of the homogenization or fragmentation hypotheses, which claim new ‘global genres’ are outnumbering, or are outnumbered by, the proliferation of a myriad of new, customized genres.
