Congrats to JF on His Dissertation Proposal Defense

This morning, Jean-François (J.-F.) Soublière successfully defended his dissertation proposal — Essays on Cultural Entrepreneurship: Distributed Cultural Entrepreneurship, Legitimacy Spillovers and Piggybacking, and a Theory of Meaning Cultivation. He is now a Ph.D. candidate, my first Ph.D. student to reach this milestone. I have been J.-F.’s supervisor since he joined our program in August 2014. His other committee members were Michael Lounsbury and Dev Jennings and his outside examiners were Mary Ann Glynn (Boston College) and Tim Hannigan (University of Alberta).
