A Behind the Scenes Look at an Award-Winning Paper on Entrepreneurship

What goes into making an exceptional academic article? In this interview, the editor-in-chief and an associate editor of the journal Human Relations ask that of Helene Ahl and Susan Marlow, authors of the journal’s official 2021 article of the year. In “Exploring the false promise of entrepreneurship through a postfeminist critique of the enterprise policy discourse in Sweden and the UK,” Ahl and Marlow explore how postfeminist assumptions have shaped — and perhaps harmed – policy initiatives in the two northern European countries. Editor-in-chief Mark Learmonth of Durham University and associate editor Yasin Rofcanin of the University of Bath go behind the scenes with Ahl and Marlow to discuss the intertwining of the personal and the intellectual behind both their careers and their writing.
