Exploring Latinx Alumni Donor Motivations At Hispanic Serving Institutions, Monica Alejandre

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

Higher education is a funding priority every state should invest in. However, the great recession of 2008 left a catastrophic impact on how public universities in the United States are funded thus mobilizing higher education institutions to seek external support.

Challenging Hegemony And Power In The Sixteenth Century: The Discourse Of Voluntary Servitude As Antecedent Of Critical Public Relations Theory, César García 2021 Central Washington University

Challenging Hegemony And Power In The Sixteenth Century: The Discourse Of Voluntary Servitude As Antecedent Of Critical Public Relations Theory, César García

All Faculty Scholarship for the College of Arts and Humanities

This article applies La Boétie’s concept of voluntary servitude to public relations historiography through a historic-critical analysis. Written in the same Renaissance era than other early history books of the history of public relations such as Machiavelli’s The Prince, The discourse of voluntary servitude (1552-1553) reveals to the publics the power that would lie in their refusal to engage with the authority (or in other words, the state, the prince or the monarch). The result is that, through a postmodern approach of emphasizing dissensus, the concept of voluntary servitude and its encouragement of activism and passive resistance can ...
