Culture, social class, and race in public relations : perspectives and applications by Damion Waymer( )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Culture, Social Class, and Race in Public Relations, edited by Damion Waymer, covers timely and understudied topics in the field of public relations (PR). Via research, case analysis, and theoretical discussion, the contributors to this volume explore ways scholars can address issues of voice and marginalization publics have encountered, or are currently encountering. This book's central question is "What role can and does a greater understanding of culture, social class, and race play in helping scholars, teachers, students, and practitioners aid in society becoming a better place to live and work?" Culture, as well as other divisive social constructs such as race and class, must be unpacked, problematized, and considered carefully before the fully functioning vision of society can be deemed possible. Some topics included are the Black Panther Party and Native American Activist rhetorical PR, risk equity, critical race theory, and pedagogical approaches to teaching culture, race, and class. This edited volume serves as an important early step by scholars - via the context of public relations - in this process of advocating social justice, as well as organizations' roles in helping society achieve these ends. -- from back cover

Black women in reality television docusoaps : a new form of representation or depictions as usual? by Adria Y Goldman( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Black Women in Reality Television Docusoaps explores representations of Black women in one of the most powerful, popular forms of reality television -- the docusoap. Viewers, critics, and researchers have taken issue with what they consider to be unflattering, one-dimensional representations. This book discusses images of Black women in reality television during the 2011 viewing year, when much criticism arose. These findings provide a context for a more recent examination of reality television portrayals during 2014, following many reality stars' promises to offer new representations. The authors discuss the types of images shown, potential readings of such portrayals, and the implication of these reality television docusoap presentations. The book will be useful for courses examining topics such as popular culture; mass media and society; women's studies; race and media; sex and gender; media studies; African American issues in mass communication; and gender, race and representation, as well as other graduate-level classes."--Publisher's description

<Title><x>Abstract</x></title><sec><title>Purpose</title>The purpose of this paper is to examine<italic>The Chronicle of Higher Education</italic>, a leading site for higher education news and politics, and its representation of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).</sec><sec><title>Design/methodology/approach</title>Frames are strong discursive tools that can help social actors achieve the following: define and solve problems, shape public opinion, increase the productivity of interpersonal negotiations and "serve as a foundation of public discourse, such as negotiation, on a mass-communication level". As such, this research is guided by both higher education literature of HBCUs and media framing theories and methods in an attempt to identify potential problems and opportunities for improvement of the presentation of HBCUs nationally in the USA.</sec><sec><title>Findings</title>This study reveals that when the frames are viewed in concert-funding challenges at HBCUs, status differential between predominantly white institutions vs HBCUs, questionable leadership practices at HBCUs and achievement success, what one sees is an unflattering picture depicted in the<italic>Chronicle of Higher Education</italic>of HBCUs, as second-hand universities that are poorly managed, outdated and are a drain on the economy. Any one of these themes, alone, is not problematic, but when taken as a whole, their entirety represents a troubling picture - one that is inaccurate because HBCUs have and continue to serve an important role in society: educating African Americans.</sec><sec><title>Originality/value</title>This paper concludes with pragmatic implications of the negative findings about HBCUs as well as discusses tactics proponents HBCUs should use to combat the negative depictions.</sec>

Shouldering the Load( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study contributes to public relations (PR) literature and research because it finds and highlights discrepancies between male and female PR faculty concerning their involvement or lack thereof with designated labor-intensive teaching and service responsibilities. More specifically, this study finds that more females serve as faculty advisors for Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapters than their male counterparts. Significantly, more females teach PR writing classes than do males. The implications of these findings are discussed with regard to tenure and promotion expectations for PR faculty members
