The 10th Anniversary of the International History of Public Relations Conference (IHPRC) was held successfully at Bournemouth University in June. Delegates presented their cases on PR History and Historiography from 23 different countries with a good number focusing this year on the History of PR Education and the Future of PR History.
During the conference the World Public Relations Archive was launched, too: its aim is to identify existing archives in professional bodies, companies, libraries and universities which can be accessed by scholars who are researching public relations history.
There will be a special call on History of PR shortly for publication in Corporate Communication: An International Journal (deadline for submission will be November 2019 for issue to be published August 2020). Get in touch with Anastasios Theofilou if you wish to learn more new publishing opportunities with Routledge. IHPRC next edition’s Call for Papers will be out early September.
