ICA preconference. London, UK, June 17.
Please join us Monday, June 17, for this half-day ICA preconference program that examines the changing dimensions of social, political, economic and cultural power that exists in global society through 21st Century communication technologies.
The goal of this program is to create a forum of international scholars and professionals in public relations and social media to explore the impact of communication technologies for public relations from different perspectives. Panelists will examine the role of public relations in making sense of the multiple, multi-vocal social media arenas and will discuss the implications for the practice as well as for society-at-large.
This pre-conference program will include:
- A critical discussion on the use and abuse of communication technologies in today’s global society
- An historical overview of the use of new communication technologies and future possible directions for more creative uses
- The use of social media for civil society organizations
- Social media sociality and the identities of online social media stakeholders
- Online nontransparent communication, its risks and implications for transparency, reputation management and trust in society.
This program will be from 2 to 5 p.m. at Ketchum Pleon, London, 35-41 Folgate Street, London, E1 6BX, UK. Ketchum Pleon is located to the East end of London. It is a 10 minute walk to Liverpool Street, and from there both the Circle line (yellow) and the Hammersmith & City line (pink) connect to Edgware Road, the closest stop to ICA preconference venue. There are no changes required. Participants wishing to leave as a group should meet at the Hilton Metropole lobby at 12:40.
