Deborah Wise is a Senior Lecturer in Public Relations and the Program Manager for the Bachelor of Communication, Public Relations at RMIT. Her research primarily investigates strategic positioning in Public Relations (PR) and her research interests range from investigating PR as a professional practice, through to how PR operates as pervasive societal phenomenon. Much of her work focuses on the degree to which power is wielded and how legitimacy is socially constructed in adopting and assigning particular discursive positions in the quest to achieve an entity's desired strategic outcomes.
