Thesis Title: Remembering Liverpool: A twice entrepreneurial space  

My research investigates how and why people engage in entrepreneurial activity in Liverpool. I am particularly interested in the contribution of local entrepreneurship to the development of inner-city districts: I have explored how the activity is encouraged or impeded here in Liverpool and one theme that has emerged is the role of particular places and their (socially remembered) history. I investigate this intersection of space, history and entrepreneurship by drawing on the works of Henri Lefebvre.
