Call for abstracts: Special issue of Possibility Studies & Society

Constraint-based methodological innovations: Tales of doctoral and early career researchers in a pandemic-ridden world

2024 Special Issue of Possibility Studies & Society

The art of ‘making do with whatever is at hand’—or ‘bricolage’ in French and ‘jugaad’ in Hindi— is well documented in the studies of entrepreneurship. The present special issue adopts this notion of ‘constraint-based innovations’ as an overarching framework to appreciate and theorise a range of creative efforts that junior researchers have been making to navigate our turbulent times and keep their projects going.

The Editors of Possibility Studies & Society are cordially inviting you to share how you have reconfigured your projects when faced with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. By sharing your experiences, reflections, and takeaways in your own words, this collection will provide the broader research community with inspiration as well as practical pointers.
