About the Workshop series

The Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society of Audencia Business School and the Group Entrepreneurship Society Transformations of University of Quebec in Montréal invite you to the

3rd Paper Development Workshop Series in Family Entrepreneurship

Audencia Business School hosts an annual Paper Development Workshop on family entrepreneurship, and the school is among the international leaders in this emerging area of scholarship. The Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society launched this Paper Development Series in Family Entrepreneurship in 2017. After a first edition on ‘Family entrepreneurship writing workshop’ (2017) and a second edition on ‘Theorizing family entrepreneurship’ (2018), we are happy to announce the third edition of this series of research workshops organized in collaboration with the Group Entrepreneurship Society Transformations of University of Quebec in Montréal (GEST ESG UQAM).

GEST is a research center of the University of Québec in Montréal’ School of Management (ESG UQAM) which addresses entrepreneurial practices, identities and discourses in marginalized contexts and for minorized people. It aims at participating to a change for a new inclusive and fruitful relation between entrepreneurship and social transformations and then addressing the dark side of entrepreneurial practices. The GEST members challenge theoretical assumptions and consider entrepreneuring in a process perspective.

Topic of the 2020 Paper Development Workshop

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

We would like to invite the authors interested in submitting to the special issue « From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring » of the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior and Research (https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/journal/ijebr/family-entrepreneurship-family-entrepreneuring)

to present their work-in-progress to the Guest editors – Miruna Radu-Lefebvre, Olivier Germain and William B. Gartner during the Paper Development Workshop which will take place on October 12th and 13th 2020 in Nantes, France. The special issue and the Paper Development Workshop aim to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses.

For this Paper Development Workshop, we call for papers addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how business family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also

emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

Indicative list of anticipated (but not exclusive) topics :

  • How processes and practices of entrepreneuring occur in the context of enterprising families and family businesses?
  • What are the tensions arising between what already exists and the emergence of newness in the context of enterprising families and family firms?
  • How the various kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can highlight various dimensions of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the familiness emerges – as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-exists the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study and write about family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) are embedded in practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How doing (social) identity work within family businesses can be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?

Aims and Scope:

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

The aim of this special issue is to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses. The Guest Editors encourage submissions of theoretical and empirical contributions addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Helin, 2011; Helin & Jabri, 2014; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

  • What are the various dimensions of family entrepreneuring, and how do these dimensions influence different kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can?
  • How does familiness emerges– as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-existing before the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?

Topic of the 2020 Paper Development Workshop

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

We would like to invite the authors interested in submitting to the special issue « From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring » of the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior and Research (https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/journal/ijebr/family-entrepreneurship-family-entrepreneuring)

to present their work-in-progress to the Guest editors – Miruna Radu-Lefebvre, Olivier Germain and William B. Gartner during the Paper Development Workshop which will take place on October 12th and 13th 2020 in Nantes, France. The special issue and the Paper Development Workshop aim to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses.

For this Paper Development Workshop, we call for papers addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how business family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also

emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

Indicative list of anticipated (but not exclusive) topics :

  • How processes and practices of entrepreneuring occur in the context of enterprising families and family businesses?
  • What are the tensions arising between what already exists and the emergence of newness in the context of enterprising families and family firms?
  • How the various kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can highlight various dimensions of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the familiness emerges – as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-exists the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study and write about family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) are embedded in practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How doing (social) identity work within family businesses can be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?

Special Issue IJEBR

From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring

Special issue call for papers from International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior & Research

The submission portal for this SI will open January 15th 2021

Call for the Special Issue: From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring CALL FOR PAPERS IJEBR

Call for the PDW in Nantes 12 & 13 October 2020: http://entrepreneuriat.com/from-family-entrepreneurship-to-family-entrepreneuring-nantes-12-13-october-2020/

Aims and Scope:

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

The aim of this special issue is to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses. The Guest Editors encourage submissions of theoretical and empirical contributions addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Helin, 2011; Helin & Jabri, 2014; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

Possible Topics

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • How do processes and practices of entrepreneuring occur in the context of enterprising families and family businesses?
  • What are the tensions arising between what already exists and the emergence of newness in the context of enterprising families and family firms?
  • What are the various dimensions of family entrepreneuring, and how do these dimensions influence different kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can?
  • How does familiness emerges– as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-existing before the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How are various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) embedded in the practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How can the doing of (social) identity work within family businesses be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?

Submissions must be original and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers that are suitable for publication in the special issue will be double-blind reviewed as per the IJEBR’s review process guidelines. The editors will base their final acceptance decisions on relevance for the special issue, technical quality, innovative content, and originality of research approaches and results.

About the Workshop series

The Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society of Audencia Business School and the Group Entrepreneurship Society Transformations of University of Quebec in Montréal invite you to the

3rd Paper Development Workshop Series in Family Entrepreneurship

Audencia Business School hosts an annual Paper Development Workshop on family entrepreneurship, and the school is among the international leaders in this emerging area of scholarship. The Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society launched this Paper Development Series in Family Entrepreneurship in 2017. After a first edition on ‘Family entrepreneurship writing workshop’ (2017) and a second edition on ‘Theorizing family entrepreneurship’ (2018), we are happy to announce the third edition of this series of research workshops organized in collaboration with the Group Entrepreneurship Society Transformations of University of Quebec in Montréal (GEST ESG UQAM).

GEST is a research center of the University of Québec in Montréal’ School of Management (ESG UQAM) which addresses entrepreneurial practices, identities and discourses in marginalized contexts and for minorized people. It aims at participating to a change for a new inclusive and fruitful relation between entrepreneurship and social transformations and then addressing the dark side of entrepreneurial practices. The GEST members challenge theoretical assumptions and consider entrepreneuring in a process perspective.

Topic of the 2020 Paper Development Workshop

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

We would like to invite the authors interested in submitting to the special issue « From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring » of the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior and Research (https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/call_for_papers.htm?id=8869) to present their work-in-progress to the Guest editors – Miruna Radu-Lefebvre, Olivier Germain and William B. Gartner during the Paper Development Workshop which will take place on October 12th and 13th 2020 in Nantes, France. The special issue and the Paper Development Workshop aim to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses.

For this Paper Development Workshop, we call for papers addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how business family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also

emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

Indicative list of anticipated (but not exclusive) topics :

  • How processes and practices of entrepreneuring occur in the context of enterprising families and family businesses?
  • What are the tensions arising between what already exists and the emergence of newness in the context of enterprising families and family firms?
  • How the various kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can highlight various dimensions of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the familiness emerges – as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-exists the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study and write about family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) are embedded in practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How doing (social) identity work within family businesses can be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?

Structure of the Workshop

The Paper Development Workshop will be held in Nantes over two full days, October 12-13, 2020. The workshop will include keynote lectures, reading workshops and paper development sessions.

Aims and Scope:

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004).

  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How are various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) embedded in the practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How can the doing of (social) identity work within family businesses be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?
