As of December 15, 66 abstracts have been received for next year’s International History of Public Relations Conference. This is equal to the 2010 inaugural conference’s submissions. That’s really good news as it shows that the PR history field is really robust.
While the US (18) and UK (8) have the largest national groups of submissions, the conference is increasingly international in its reach. Researchers in 28 countries have put in abstracts, almost double the 2011 range. This year, for the first time, abstracts have come from Bulgaria, Brazil, China, Georgia, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, New Zealand, Palestine, Turkey, Taiwan and UAE.
It’s excellent news and a boost for future research. In all, the conference has received more than 170 abstracts for three conferences and demonstrates that this really is a developing field.
The conference will be held at Bournemouth University on July 11-12 next year. Join us and make history!
