Research today

Cherry Cheung discusses the development of social ventures in the final event of the spring 'research today' series on 22 March, and is joined by Sara Abdaless as moderator

Our research explores the role of bricolage in the development of socially entrepreneurial ventures amongst displaced populations. We selected three social entrepreneurs from three different displacement contexts through semi-structured interviews. Our cross-case analysis found that bricolage was being deployed by displaced social entrepreneurs to start up a business. The outcomes of these activities enabled the displaced entrepreneurs to achieve their goal of re-engagement in business, despite possessing very few physical and financial resources.

The new season of “research today!” seminars opens on Thursday, 15 February 2018!

Season Four of our “research today!” seminars opens on 15 February 2018. If you haven’t been to one before, these are short presentations of emerging or new research in the Business School, followed by an informal discussion. They last an hour, they are happening every week from now until the end of term, and this season again has great talks with some exciting guests.

Who can attend?  Anyone interested can attend, no registration is needed. Just join us!

Who can present? Researchers and doctoral students from the Business School and associated guests, visitors and collaborators. This is a research forum to exchange ideas, get to know each other's research and foster collaboration in a collegial and friendly environment. The Season Four programme is full, but you can still book a spot for Season Five in the summer if you contact Fabian Scholda, RA research management.

What’s in it for me if I come along?

How long do you have? Find out about sexual citizenship, corporate disclosure and corporate governance in the Pakistani banking sector, the future of collective bargaining in Nigeria or all you need to know about publishing in high level journals and more. 

See new ways of presenting persuasively. Meet new colleagues. Discover things you have in common. Test new ideas and bring your best arguments. It could even lead to new research collaborations.

Great! Just remind me where and when?

LR391, every Thursday from 12-1pm. You don’t have to book, just roll up. We continue informally until 2pm for those who want to and have the time. Bring your lunch or coffee, and a sharp mind.
