Academics, practitioners and research students are invited to submit competitive abstracts for presentation at the 13th International History of Public Relations Conference (IHPRC) which will be held at Bournemouth University on July 5-6, 2023.

Abstracts can be submitted until January 16, 2023, and should express the purpose, methodology, findings and implications of the research.

The conference is organised by the Public Relations Research Group of the Faculty of Media & Communication and it will have a hybrid structure that combines physical attendance at the conference as well as online presentations after the success of the 12th edition.

Moreover we highlight that the Special Issue of “Corporate Communication: An International Journal” on History of PR is now open to receive submissions. Priority will be given to the papers from the latest IHPRC 2022, but the call is open to everybody. The deadline to submit the manuscript will be December 30, 2022. More info here

IHPRC has been the premier international conference addressing the history of public relations and related disciplines since 2010. As a part of the EUPRERA network “History of PR” we invite actual members to participate and we are open for new to join the network  to develop cross-border projects and to explore the distinctive characteristics of public relations history across the continent.
