About the Seminar
The seminar will commence with a general overview of cross sector partnerships and will then present the findings of a critical examination of the partnership phenomenon based on 75 interviews in businesses and nonprofit organisations in the UK. Two in-depth partnership case studies are examined: an environmental non-profit organisation, Earthwatch, in partnership with a mining company, Rio Tinto; and a youth charity, The Prince’s Trust, in partnership with the Royal Bank of Scotland. The study suggests that when collaborative non-profit organisations partner with businesses there is an “overt functional conflict deficit” or in other words there are insufficient opportunities for the expression of divergent opinions that would lead to fundamental changes within organisations and society.

The newly formed Cardiff Public Relations and Integrated Communications Research Network (CaPRICoRN) will be holding a Postgraduate Researchers Seminar on The Use of Metaphors in the Discourse of Sustainability on Friday 23rd April 2010, 1-3pm at the BRASS Centre, 55 Park Place, Cardiff.

Bruno Frischherz is Professor of Communication and Business Ethics at the Business School of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Switzerland. He is a Visiting Scholar at the Cardiff School of English, Communication and Philosophy (ENCAP) and at the Centre for Business Relationships, Accountability, Sustainability and Society (BRASS). His current research is looking at how different actors (including public sector, science, civil society, business and media organisations) engage in the public discourse on sustainability
About the Seminar
The aims of the seminar are to show the relevance of metaphors in the public discourse on sustainability; to analyse the source and target domains of sustainability metaphors; to analyse visualisations of the abstract concept of ‘sustainability’; and to analyse the function of these metaphors as part of instructional and persuasive representations. Participants will be invited to analyse and discuss samples of textual and pictorial metaphors during the seminar.
