Jane Addams and the contemporary Swedish social entrepreneurial scene: reflections on the gendered making of social knowledge
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Sociology.ORCID iD: 0000-0001-5026-2795
2018 (English)In: Jane Addams' Sociology and the Spirit of Social Entrepreneurship / [ed] Vessela Misheva and Andrew Blasko, Uppsala: Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis, 2018, p. 131-143Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The basic research question of this chapter is: Were there any equivalents to Jane Addams as a social entrepreneur in contemporary Sweden? 

To answer that question the chapter is structured in three parts. The first part is concerned with the concept of "social entrepreneurship", the second with Jane Addams as a social entrepreneur and the third with the contemporary Swedish social entrepreneurial scene. In the last respect, Ellen Key, Anna Bugge Wicksell and Emilia Broomé are empirically highlighted and compared with Jane Addams as social entrepreneurs. 

By historically situating Key, Wicksell and Broomé as well as Addams within the international social reform movement, the chapter argues that the peace movement and the rise of the social sciences were partly interconnected, and that Jane Addams helps us to reveal these partly gendered patterns in the making of social knowledge.
