Incorporating linguistic, cultural, and narrative turning points in the social sciences that have changed the way we think, study, analyse and practice research, this book demonstrates new ways of examining entrepreneurship as a societal phenomenon.Following on from New Movements in Entrepreneurship, this is the second volume in a mini-series on movements in entrepreneurship. It aims to forward the study of entrepreneurship by stimulating and exploring new ideas and research practices in relation to new themes, theories, methods, pragmatic stances and contexts. The book explores different experiences and accounts of entrepreneurship, as well as reflections on 'story telling' in entrepreneurship research, discursive studies, and debates on how to interpret narrative and discursive work.This fascinating book will provide students and researchers of entrepreneurship, business administration and management with inspiring empirical research, and valuable discussions on how to study and write (on) entrepreneurship.
