‘Learning to fly: Entrepreneurship Research as a living process of inquiry’ workshop
February 22 @ 9:30 am - 5:15 pm UTC+0

We are delighted to invite you to the upcoming ‘Learning to fly: Entrepreneurship Research as a living process of inquiry’ workshop, supported by the European Council of Small Business and Entrepreneurship (ECSB) event fund, and British Academy of Management (BAM) and hosted by the Management School’s Brett Centre for Entrepreneurship (BCfE).

This one-day event gathers academics form different disciplines, including education and antropology, who will share insights on the question of ‘how can we make inquiry into entrepreneurship more interesting and purposeful?’.

For any inquirer, every moment can become the subject of their curiosity and a point of study.

Exploring human practice means dealing with what is discovered through thoughtful processing and appropriate action, however, any new process of inquiry requires the questioning of:

  • The relationship between ourselves and our roles as researchers, writers and practitioners
  • How we enact our relationships with audiences and wider communities
  • The theories and concepts we work with in meaningful ways.

Structured through a series of ‘Creative Acts’, this interactive workshop seeks to re-discover, re-explore and re-engage with what inquiry means to us, as well as uncovering practices on what it means to be curious and whether and how researchers view entrepreneurship as a field of inquiry.

As well as challenging conventional canons of Entrepreneurship Scholarship, we provide an opportunity to develop a more contextual and processual account of different methods of inquiry in social sciences.

The workshop is ideal for early, mid and late career researchers seeking to discover and explore different methods of inquiry for Entrepreneurship Research.

We want to inspire you to think critically and engage reflexively with your own research practice, in a session where multiple voices are able to find a space and talk to each other.
