Paper Development Workshop – Family Entrepreneurship – Audencia Nantes – 12-13 avril

The Rn’B Lab and the Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society
Paper Development Workshop Series
Family Entrepreneurship

Issue N° 2: Family Entrepreneurship theory development workshop
Dates: April 12-13, 2018
Location: Nantes, France
Deadline: March 1st, 2018

FE_WS_2018_call_22_01_18

The Rn’B Lab and the Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society of Audencia are happy to announce the second edition of its new series of research workshops.  Audencia Business School is among Europe’s top management schools and offers programmes that are regularly featured in the best international rankings. The school has prestigious international accreditations: EQUIS (EFMD) since 1998, AACSB since 2004 and Amba since 2010 for the full-time MBA and since 2012 for the Audencia Master in Management (Grande Ecole programme). The mission of the Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society is to develop relevant research on family firms, as well as programmes for intra-family successors. The Chair also organizes several annual research and business meetings, conferences and networking events.

For the past decades, the fields of entrepreneurship, family, and family business research have been the object of numerous studies, regularly published and communicated at conferences and in scientific journals. While entrepreneurship, family, and family business have been studied as relatively separate domains with their own dedicated research conferences and academic journals, other scholars attempt to build research on their intersection: family entrepreneurship. Thus, the field of family entrepreneurship includes, yet goes beyond, that of family business.

This rapidly developing field is attracting much scholarly attention, as we can see by the research production to date (e.g. Bettinelli, Randerson, and Fayolle, 2014; Randerson, Bettinelli, Fayolle and Anderson, 2015; Randerson, Bettinelli, Fayolle and Dossena, 2016; Randerson, Dossena and Fayolle, 2016; Radu Lefebvre and Lefebvre, 2016; Dibrell, Bettinelli and Randerson, 2017), but also since 2012 a regular Professional Development Workshop and the annual meeting of the Entrepreneurship Division of the Academy of Management.

The second issue of the Audencia Paper Development Workshop Series is dedicated to developing theory for Family Entrepreneurship. We would like to invite scholars from the fields of Family Science, Entrepreneurship, and Family Business and others (e.g. OB, HRM, Psychology, among others) to convene to identify theories relevant to advance Family Entrepreneurship research. This workshop aims to be highly interactive: there will be of course opportunities to present works-in-progress in the traditional academic format, but also times for sharing what one’s own research or field brings to FE (pechakucha format), creating knowledge (focus groups). We hope that these two days will be a great opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones, create new synergies and co-authorships.

Confirmed attendees for the moment: Céline Barrédy, Andrea Calabro, Maria Jose Parada Balderrama, Bill Gartner, Josh Daspit, Natalia Vershinina, Eric Clinton, Claire Seaman…

To guarantee a high quality of interaction, participation to this workshop will be limited to 50 participants, on a first come, first serve basis. There are no registration fees, and meals and coffee breaks will be provided for the duration of the workshop.

Timeline

  • Before March 1stst : submit an extended abstract or a letter of intention (what you bring to FE in a few paragraphs) to Kathleen Randerson (kathleenranderson @ yahoo.fr), copying Abbie Dayao (adayao @ audencia.com)
  • April 23-13, 2018: workshop.

Paper Accelerator Workshop on Gender and Entrepreneurship – 19-20 February, 2018 – IÉSEG School of Management

   

Key note speakers:

Dr. Sarah Thebaud and Dr. Sally Jones


Call for Papers

Individuals evoke cultural biases when they interpret and judge phenomena against standards and norms – or stereotypes – inherent to their own culture. Accumulating evidence suggests that cultural biases have a broad impact on gender disparities in entrepreneurial interest, activity and success. Stereotypes about women’s and men’s differing abilities can prompt women to evaluate business opportunities less favorably, lower their entrepreneurial intentions and self-efficacy, and disadvantage them in their quest for financial and social support from others  (Bigelow et al. 2014; Gupta et al, 2008; 2009; Gupta and Turban, 2012; Thébaud 2010; 2015).  Cultural beliefs regarding men’s and women’s roles in the family—beliefs which are variably shaped by the normative and cultural context (Chell and Baines, 1998; Nelson and Constantinidis, 2016)— can further facilitate or hinder entrepreneurial behavior (Welter et al, 2006; Cliff, 1998; Thébaud, 2015).

However, contemporary entrepreneurship research is often de-contextualized, with a relative lack of attention to the structural and cultural features that impact gender inequalities in entrepreneurial resources, strategies, and outcomes (Hughes et al, 2012; Lewis, 2014; Jennings and Brush, 2013, Ahl, 2006; Welter et al, 2016). Future research would benefit from more collaborative work across national borders which investigates how cultural biases pattern entrepreneurship differently in different contexts. We also believe that the full breadth and scope of what constitutes gender and entrepreneurship research requires extension. For example, studies investigating the impact of gender stereotypes on men entrepreneurs (Jennings and Brush, 2013) or the constraints of dominant models of masculinity for men in family business (Nelson and Constantinidis, 2016) would prove fruitful. At the same time, whiteness and masculinity continue to provide intangible resources to entrepreneurial legitimacy (Martinez Dy, et al., 2016) and there is a need for more research which addresses how intersecting identities (gender and race, social class, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability) form and shape the entrepreneurial experience.

In this workshop, we are especially interested in papers that theorize and/or empirically evaluate the ways that gender stereotypesand implicit cultural beliefs affect entrepreneurial outcomes—such as entrepreneurial interests, processes, resources, or activities.  We especially welcome scholarly work that identifies how the (negative) effects of cultural biases may be mitigated in certain social contexts

This is a paper development workshop. We seek to assemble a group of mid-career researchers, with an established knowledge and experience in gender and entrepreneurship research, who are looking to accelerate existing manuscripts.  Through expert reviews, discussion and feedback – from both peers and two key note speakers (Dr. Sarah Thébaud and Dr. Sally Jones) – we aim to help participants significantly improve and advance their papers.

In doing so, we hope to create, nurture and foster research collaboration between gender and entrepreneurship academics from different national contexts.

To guarantee a high quality of feedback, participation in this workshop will be limited to 15 papers. We welcome original research but will prioritize papers that have been previously presented at conferences or in preparation for journal submission. Workshop participants will be expected to read, reflect and discuss on other’s submissions.
