Poster Dimensions of Agency

 

Kurzbeschreibung: In recent years, the figure of the entrepreneur has become ubiquitous in many discourses. Entrepreneurship is no longer limited to economic activities, but encompasses competences and practices in many fields. There are cultural entrepreneurs, identity entrepreneurs, norm entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs and violence entrepreneurs, to name but a few. In this lecture series, we aim at critically exploring the surge in "entrepreneurship" and its relevance for the study of social processes in the Global South. Are these new modes of entrepreneurship really new or are they new labels for agency and actors that have long been observed by anthropologists, such as for instance Big Men, development brokers or identity managers? Is the popularity of the label "entrepreneur" a consequence of neoliberal ideologies of self-management? Is "entrepreneurship" useful as a heuristic device for studying particular forms of agency? What distinguishes entrepreneurship from other forms of agency?
