The EMBLA research group and the knowledge platform Entrepreneurship and social change invite you to an exciting symposium and workshop on gender, entrepreneurship and postfeminism and we look forward to receiving your abstracts.
The symposium focuses on cutting edge research in the gender and entrepreneurship field, with a particular interest in the ambiguous effects produced through entrepreneurial discourses. On one hand we see new feminist movements such as MeeToo, body image activism, and feminist trying out their ideas on the market (FemInc.ism). On the other hand, entrepreneurial discourses, pervaded by neoliberal rationalities, also seem to co-opt feminist collective aspirations. The goal of the symposium it to investigate whether the concept of postfeminism can further these discussions and contribute to theories on gender and entrepreneurship.
