Description

Public relations practitioners act on behalf of governments, organizations and social movements to promote particular discourses and interests. Within this course we will examine the roles that public relations professionals play in societal discourse transformation through the use of local and international case studies. Drawing upon the work of key discourse scholars, the course will focus on the identity, relational and ideational dimensions of discourse production and transformation.
