24.05.2022: New publication: "Selbstständigkeit in der Gastronomie"

Katharina Mojescik has published her doctoral thesis „Selbstständigkeit in der Gastronomie. Eine arbeitssoziologische Untersuchung unternehmerischen Handelns am Beispiel von Food Trucker*innen“ (= Self-employment in gastronomy. A sociological study of entrepreneurial activity using the example of food truckers). By focusing on entrepreneurs, their interactions and motives in the analysis, self-employment in (mobile) gastronomy is examined in depth. In order to explore and explain the entrepreneurial activities of food truckers, Katharina Mojescik elaborates the intersection of the sociology of work, food and culture. Through Grounded Theory approach, the study identifies central embedding dimensions of self-employment in gastronomy, as well as relevant stages of entrepreneurial activity and differing strategies of entrepreneurial action in this context. The book is published by Springer Verlag and can be found here.
