With little research appreciating how family business organizations unfold within the spatial context over generations, we call for work that sees such organizations as being actively involved in the construction of place rather than being constrained or enabled by its unending presence (Bika and Frazer 2021; Bika and Rosa 2022; Welter and Baker 2021; Welter et al. 2017).
Our hybrid sub-theme, "(Under)mining place over generations? Family business organizations as bounded in space, time, and power", invites submissions that build a new family business 'in context' rather than a 'by context' point of view and show how family and non-family firm concentrations and interactions shape and are shaped by place, community, and region.
