Movements in entrepreneurship


In a series seeking to revive the imaginative aspect of entrepreneurship and its study in business schools, Hjorth (entrepreneurship and innovation management, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark) and Steyaert (organizational psychology, U. of St. Gallen, Switzerland) introduce 13 chapters that treat entrepreneurship studies from a 'minority language' perspective. Contributors present case studies examining aesthetic forces and their political implications in entrepreneurial policies, processes, places, identities, and images. For example, an art installation in New York transcends the usually dichotomized relationship between artistic practices and enterprising art. Life stories of Australian Aborigine entrepreneurs focus on identity issues. Published in association with the Entrepreneurship and Small Business Research Institute, Stockholm, the volume is based on a workshop held in Iceland.
