Visualizing Gender – Norm-critical Design and Innovation
2016 (English)In: Research Handbook on Gender and Innovation / [ed] Gry Agnete Alsos, Ulla Hytti and Elisabet Ljunggren, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2016, 252-273 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Innovation is seen as one of the main engines of economic growth. It is generally assumed to be gender neutral when, in fact, the gendered construction of innovation has been traditionally masculine. This Handbook explores the nexus between innovation and gender by providing a wide range of studies from different analytical and methodological perspectives and from various regional and industry contexts and draws implications for a gender-inclusive innovation policy. The multidisciplinary group of contributors discuss topics such as gender and innovation in new and small businesses, and growth businesses; addressing innovation in different organizational contexts ranging from public sector health care to mining and forestry; researching gender in innovation policy and in design and materiality.This Handbook will be useful to researchers looking to understand parallels between research on gender and innovation on one hand, and research on gender and entrepreneurship or management on the other. It will also be invaluable to students looking for an overview of research in both areas.
