ReForm

release date: Feb 01, 2017
ReForm
reForm documents the creative process of artist Pep�n Osorio as he translates the closure of Fairhill Elementary School, Philadelphia into a moving installation that honours the history of this school through collaborations with the many generations of students who were taught there.This beautiful artist's book is a limited edition letter-pressed facsimile of Osorio's sensitively created, hand-written homage to the school pupils' classroom exercise books.Fairhill Elementary was one of 23 schools that the Philadelphia Public School District closed in 2013. These closures follow a pattern of systemic disinvestment in low-income communities of colour across the United States.Osorio's multi-media immersive installation was built with objects salvaged from the closed school including books, furniture, and fixtures such as trophy cases that signify the shared history of this proud Latino community in North Philadelphia.Featuring new writings from authors including revered American artist, Martha Rosler, and Nato Thompson, Chief Curator at the New York-based public arts institution Creative Time.reForm was commissioned by Temple Contemporary at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, USA and was published on the occasion of the exhibition reform which was installed at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, USA from August 30, 2015 - May 20 2016.

International Public Relations

release date: Jan 01, 1996
International Public Relations
As a formal occupation, public relations grew primarily in the United States through much of the twentieth century. In recent years, however, it has spread rapidly throughout the world. Broad outlines on how public relations practices differ from country to country have only recently begun to take shape in scholarly writing about the field. The existing literature on international public relations tends to focus on how those working for western organizations --particularly multi-national corporations--can best practice abroad. Although useful, such writings tend to focus on adaptation of western approaches, not on development of new ones designed specifically for varied sociocultural settings around the world. The editors have produced this book for a number of reasons. There has been tremendous growth in the teaching of public relations around the world--enhancing practice in many countries outside North America. There has also been rapid growth in the number of professors who demand theoretical perspectives which might facilitate a unified comparative analysis across countries and regions. Only a few U.S. universities--six documented in this book--now teach courses formerly called "International Public Relations." However, many professors are going abroad to teach and do research. This suggests increased interest in and a need for courses dealing with international public relations. Furthermore, there is a dearth of literature dealing in depth with international PR, an important component of international communication. This appears to be the first book-length comparative analysis of public relations as practiced in various countries and regions around the world. Although existing books on international PR focus largely on ways in which western practitioners, employers, and clients can operate effectively in other countries, this volume views public relations in each country or region covered from the perspective of practitioners in that country. It contains six chapters designed to provide a theoretical anchor for the 14 country and region analyses. Given the intense interest in public relations education as a factor in professional enhancement, it also discusses issues and practices relating to education.
