Ideology in Neoliberal Higher Education: The Case of the Entrepreneur
Clark, Jonathan Owen; Jackson, Louise H.
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v16 n1 p238-260 Apr 2018
Entrepreneurship skills have become a naturalised part of many curricula in higher education, especially in arts contexts. But what does the term actually mean? By investigating entrepreneurship research, and connecting it with political philosophy, we explore the ways in which the elusive figure of the entrepreneur, both in the academy and in society more generally, is far from being natural or inevitable, and is actually an elaborate type of construction with contradictory features.
