Entrepreneurship in the socialist and post-socialist space, reminder

Call for Papers:
October 31 – November 1, 2011.
University of Helsinki, Finland

This workshop is dedicated to studying entrepreneurship and
entrepreneurial behaviour in 
different sectors of socialist and post-socialist society. Previously
entrepreneurship has been analysed mostly in the economic sphere.
Here, the topic is discussed in a broader social and cultural
perspective in addition to the fields of technology and science. We
also explore East-West interaction during the Cold War, investigating
how Western economic actors functioned in the socialist arena and
impact this interaction has 
had on the post-Cold War period.

The workshop aims to bring together scholars from different
disciplines and different institutional backgrounds working on
related topics. The organisers intend to establish an international
collaboration platform and map out a common agenda for a future
international research project. The purpose is to develop a series of
meetings where the participants can continue to deepen theoretical and
methodological discussions. In addition, the organisers will publish a
compilation of selected papers from the workshop.

Keynote speakers:
•        Ann-Mari Sättre, University of Uppsala, Sweden
•        Oksana Shmulyar Gréen, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
•        László Bruszt, European University Institute, Florence,
•        Ivan Tchalakov, University of Plovdiv, Bulgaria

We encourage papers related to entrepreneurship in topics such as:
•        The spread of entrepreneurial behaviour in the Eastern bloc
during the Cold War
•        Various forms of socialist entrepreneurship
•        The impact of the interaction between East and West
•        Western entrepreneurs in the socialist and post-socialist
•        Eastern entrepreneurs in the West
•        Consequences of socialist entrepreneurship for the
post-communist era

We invite students to submit proposals of no more than 250 words by
October 21, 2011 to 
Dr. Katalin Miklóssy, to the e-mail address:

The workshop is organised by the CERES network
