This unit pays special attention to the public relations industry in managing conflict and social change at different stages of modernity and contexts. Drawing on a number of activist case studies, the unit emphasises a socio-cultural understanding and analysis through a ‘critical public relations’ lens in order to understand ‘PR’ and its impacts, especially for marginalised groups. This assists students to analyse movements for social change and communication campaigns through a range of novel perspectives.
