[en] Long before the current vogue for acknowledging contexts and contextualisation processes in the research process, Johannisson’s pioneering scholarship provoked different conceptual and methodological experimentations that were oriented to context. Bengt’s unceasing curiosity for understanding how particular localities, communities, networks, industrial districts, regions and families produce, embed and enact entrepreneurial activities, is testament to his belief in the importance of the ‘organising context’ for entrepreneurship. In this essay, I discuss how Bengt’s theoretical and methodological sensitivity to context has provided a strong legacy for the entrepreneurship field, not least because it has opened up possibilities for innovative research methodologies that locate the researcher as situated actor but also because it emphasises participative and relational forms of entrepreneurial action that reduce self-other boundaries.
