1. King, Stephen. "Teaching Public Management in the Public Interest: Using the New Public Service Model to Teach Undergraduates in Political Science and Public Administration" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Midwest Political Science Association, Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, Illinois, Apr 20, 2006 <Not Available>. 2018-07-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p140908_index.html>

Abstract: Teaching public management to undergraduate students is challenging. This paper examines one such attempt: to explain public management to undergraduate political science students enrolled in an introductory public administration course. In recent decades, much has been written about managing the public sector more like a business and less like a government. Government management is generally termed wasteful and paper focuses less on how to teach public management in the public interest to undergraduates and more on what should be taught about public management in the public interest. In order to accomplish this goal the paper does three things: 1) it defines public management, 2) describes several competing theories of public management, 3) explains how the New Public Service is applied to various public management situations and realities, and 4) offers conclusions and implications for teaching and research in public management.

Abstract: This study took one of the first steps to examine (1) public relations practitioners’ use of diverse social media tools and their application in various public relations functions relate to the positive and negative impact of social media use upon practitioners’ daily work, (2) how strategic use of social media tools in different components of public relations impacts practitioners’ work-life interfaces and encourages their excellent public relations behaviors, and (3) how social media impact, work-life experiences of practitioners, and leadership behaviors are all intertwined. From the perspective of individual practitioners’ work-life experiences and leadership skills, it examined the way social media have transformed our profession. Through a national sample of public relations practitioners (n = 458), we conducted a path model analysis. Theoretical and practical implications of the study were discussed.

Abstract: C. Wright Mills called for a sociology that helped people understand the complex social forces influencing their lives. Social inequality was one of his driving concerns. In this paper, we look at how the use of public funding for new professional sports stadiums is a prime example of the need for a public sociology. Approximately $10 billion of public money have gone toward sports stadiums since the 1980s (Keating, 1999), while urban areas suffer through rising inequality and inadequately funded social services. We argue that “local growth coalitions” are a driving force to build new stadiums with public money, even in the face of evidence that it is not a particularly wise investment. Stadium building has become part of the accepted “growth strategy” of many local growth coalitions in their efforts to revitalize cities. We suggest this policy is misguided and may contribute to rising inequality.

4. Lee, Hyung Min. "Public Diplomacy as International Public Relations: Speculation on National Determinants of World Governments’ Web Public Diplomacy Interactivity" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, May 23, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2018-07-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p170558_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This study attempts to explore national determinants of world governments’ Web public diplomacy interactivity, which presumably promotes effective public diplomacy and international public relations to some extent, by content-analyzing the 191 UN-affiliated countries’ public diplomacy Web sites. Based on the result, it is revealed that nation-states’ economic scale and level of social freedom are significant determinants of their level of Web public diplomacy interactivity, whereas their political system is not. Implications and suggestions for future studies are presented as well.

Abstract: Brossard, Scheufele, and others have argued the effectiveness of low-information rationality (LIR) frames in communicating science to the public. LIR frames, however, are not intended to increase understanding of science but to facilitate the public acceptance of science policy or technology implementations. As such, LIR frames position public trust as a product of effective "marketing," yet can also put the credibility of institutions at risk when an affected public seeks transparency in decisionmaking. Similarly, when LIR frames are used to inform fallback communication during times of extended crisis, they can not only contribute to the instability of public trust and the loss of credibility of public institutions. Witness, for example, the shifts in credibility and trust of experts/authority, although to different ends and in different contexts, in reaction to the “work” of U.S. AIDS activists (Epstein, 2000) and Cumbrian farmers (Wynne, 1992).
In this proposal, I suggest that the policy of using LIR outreach frames can also lead to heightened risk to the public. In the case reported here, a neighborhood-led challenge to an implicit LIR frame of public outreach related to the presence of carbon tetrachloride in a regional well grew into a conflict over issues of lay expertise, the credibility of the city public health department, and trust in the water utility. The utility’s long-standing model of public communication was countered by activists, who negotiated joint utility-activist public meetings, who sought the expertise of regional hydrogeologists, and who questioned the wisdom of the “science”-based decisions used to determine safety of their drinking water. The incident I examine occurred when the challenge to utility outreach was at its height and had already resulted both in a new communication plan and in substantial media coverage. During a short-lived chemical contamination of a different city well, the utility returned to their more “comfortable” communication frame. The enduring strength of this LIR model within the utility culture worsened the public risk: It contributed to the failure of the utility to provide information to residents who complained of water containing substantial particulate. It led to under-communication of risk to the staff flushing the street hydrants without precautions for skin and lung exposure. It meant that neither the mayor's office nor city public health was informed of the event until 24 hours later. And it perhaps also helps explain why, despite a broken valve, a suddenly nonfunctioning cardlock on the wellhouse (which delayed awareness of contamination), and water that both stank and in places ran out as black sludge, no one collected water samples for later analysis. As a result, the utility was able neither to ascertain the level of contamination nor verify the absence of other contaminants. The decision not to communicate what as considered to be the science of the situation to any but those in the water utility in charge of maintaining the public trust not only led to dramatic dissolution of that trust but also heightened the risk to the public.
