How can progressive rap help humanise management scholarship? An exploration of progressive rap in Britain, France and Turkey

Fabrice PERIAC, Mustafa Ozbilgin, Cihat Erbil, Ebru Soytemel

Reflecting on the way progressive protest rap music helped humanise the music industry by taking on global challenges such as incivility, poverty, violence, inequality , and injustice, we discuss how management studies could embrace such insights from this field of emergent art. In particular, we explore how management studies, in the same way as progressive rap, could reveal the complexity of reality through an engagement with lived experience beyond established frames (abductive research), through an exploration of multilevel relations of power (critical realism), and by revealing possibilities of progress by relevance, transdisciplinarity, plurilingualism, and transcultural engagement (engaged scholarship).
