International History of Public Relations Conference - 10.08.2015
Back from the 6th edition, ready for the next one in 2016
The conference on 8-9 July at Bournemouth University has been held for the sixth time and included 43 papers from authors in 20 countries: the conference had its highest-ever number of presentations.
“The strength-in-depth of the papers shows how far the scholarship of the history of public relations has developed since the first conference in 2010,” said conference chair Professor Tom Watson. IHPRC 2015 has many more first-time presenters than in previous years, which is also extending the base of historical research. Selected papers from the conference will be published in a Public Relations History special issue of Public Relations Review in 2016.
The next International History of Public Relations Conference will be held at Bournemouth University on July 6-7, 2016.
