10 months ago Thomas Stoeckle and I were launching the call for papers for the special edition of ESSACHESS – Journal for Communication Studies focusing on the future of PR. We were in the mid-pandemic. The edition is now complete and available to read, download, share and discuss.
It features 7 articles authored by contributors from Australia to South Africa, from Germany to Brazil and the USA, observing, commenting, and thinking about the future of PR and communications in practical and theoretical terms or both.
If you want to get involved with similar research or would like to have a discussion around these topics within your own department, get in touch!
Also, many thanks for the editors and team at Essachess for the invitation, opportunity and support throughout the process!
