    Call for Extended Abstracts

    Race and Entrepreneurship (#17540)

    Hi all,

    We are organizing the third annual PDW on the topic of race and entrepreneurship for the 2024 AOM conference in Chicago. As part of this PDW, we hope to encourage research in this area by providing an opportunity to get feedback from journal editors on extended abstracts. We are seeking abstracts (3-5 pages double-spaced, excluding references) on the topic of race (broadly defined) and entrepreneurship (broadly defined).

    Please submit abstracts to raceandentrepreneurship@gmail.com by July 18th, 2024.

    Session: August 10th, 2024; 12:30-2:00

    Format: In person

    Description: In this professional development workshop, we explore the topic of entrepreneurship and race. The first workshop (2022) addressed the past, present, and future of research on race and entrepreneurship. The second workshop (2023) addressed the challenges and opportunities in publishing research on race and entrepreneurship. This third workshop will introduce Bourdieu's Practice Theory as a theoretical foundation from which to study race and entrepreneurship. After this panel discussion, those in the audience who submitted an abstract will have an opportunity to discuss their project with editors from top entrepreneurship journals. The ultimate goal we have for this PDW is to encourage a broad research agenda on race and entrepreneurship that captures both the structural qualities of marginalization and the agentic qualities of entrepreneurship.

    Participating editors (and former editors):

    Garry Bruton (former AE at Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal)

    Brett Gilbert (AE at Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal)

    Diana Hechavarria (AE at Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice)

    Jeffrey Pollack (AE at Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice)
