For starting this academic year, we’ll discuss different facets of Social Entrepreneurship in the context of a joint ICOR-INENT Seminar. We’ll have the pleasure to host Daniel Hjorth, Professor at Copenhagen Business School, Denmark, and Lund University, School of Economics and Management, Sweden, and adjunct professor at Graduate School of Management, Kyoto University, Japan. He is the former Editor-in-Chief of Organization Studies, and serves as Art Review Editor for Business Ethics Quarterly. His research and publications are centered on philosophy and business, art and management, and aesthetics and organization while empirically investigating organizational creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation. He will present his paper in development “The Poetics of Imagined Lives: Desire, Imagination and Fabulation in Social Entrepreneuring” co-authored with Mollie Painter (Nottingham Trent University)(abstract available here).
Following, Elodie Dessy, post-doctoral researcher at Iéseg, with research interests on philanthropy, social-mission platforms and boundary work, will present her paper in development: “Should they stay or should they go? The interplay of divergent boundary work strategies in shaping field renewal in Belgian philanthropy” co-authored with Benjamin Huybrechts (Iéseg) and Danielle Logue (USNW Sydney) (abstract available here).
