New movements in entrepreneurship A thought-provoking series on new movements in entrepreneurship studies by Chris Steyaert and Daniel Hjorth New Movements in Entrepreneurship The aim of this book is to advance entrepreneurship research, focussing on the following four key movements: • broad movements within the academic field of entrepreneurship and how to move it further in terms of new frameworks, theories and methodologies • movements in the concept of entrepreneurship through project-based, action-based, enactment based and discourse-based approaches • knowledge-based entrepreneurship and the processes in which the role of universities, new organisations, regions and cities are connected and exemplified • global, ethnic, transformed and new economies and how entrepreneurship contributes to renewing economies and moving beyond just economics to view the effects of entrepreneurship on societies. Students and scholars of entrepreneurship and business administration will find this a clear yet far-reaching account of the movement of entrepreneurship research. Narrative and Discursive Approaches to Entrepreneurship Incorporating linguistic, cultural, and narrative turning points in the social sciences that have changed the way we think, study, analyse and practice research, this book demonstrates new ways of examining entrepreneurship as a societal phenomenon. This is the second volume in a mini-series on movements in entrepreneurship. It aims to forward the study of entrepreneurship by stimulating and exploring new ideas and research practices in relation to new themes, theories, methods, pragmatic stances and contexts. The book explores different experiences and accounts of entrepreneurship, as well as reflections on ‘story telling’ in entrepreneurship research, discursive studies, and debates on how to interpret narrative and discursive work. This fascinating book will provide students and researchers of entrepreneurship, business administration and management with inspiring empirical research, and valuable discussions on how to study and write (on) entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship as Social Change This book examines entrepreneurship as a societal phenomenon. It provides an in-depth study of the social aspects of entrepreneurship, illustrating how entrepreneurship affects society. The need to move beyond economy to disclose entrepreneurship in its societal forms is demonstrated, as is the relevance of our understanding of entrepreneurship as a societal phenomenon. The contributors show that entrepreneurship is a society-creating force and as such, it evokes new questions for entrepreneurship research and attempts to engage with new theoretical formulations. They begin with discussions on early Schumpeter and a rhetorical analysis of the current academic literature on social entrepreneurship. They go on to present myriad contextual examples of how entrepreneurship can shape social change, and indicate how this is initiated through various social settings, relationships and communities. Through rich empirical work this book explores the social of ‘social entrepreneurship’ and in doing so shows us how entrepreneurship is at home where society is created. As such, it will prove a fascinating read for academics, researchers and students with an interest in entrepreneurship, sociology and economic sociology. The Politics and Aesthetics of Entrepreneurship Presenting original empirical material, the eminent contributors examine control and entrepreneurship in various organizational contexts. They go on to demonstrate how control can be exercised entrepreneurially, how art brings an entrepreneurial force into society, and how entrepreneurship operates by aesthetic moves. The need to move beyond the traditional focus on the economic and business implications of entrepreneurship is also discussed, as is the relevance of political and aesthetic theory to our understanding of entrepreneurship as a creative force. The book provides entrepreneurship studies with a new language, that in itself is an aesthetic effort with political implications, resulting in new theoretical, empirical and practical possibilities. It will prove a fascinating read for students, academics and researchers with an interest in entrepreneurship and management and creativity and aesthetics.
