Laurent Busca

Ph.D. in Management Sciences – Marketing

Maître de Conférences – Institut Montpellier Management (Université de Montpellier) – MRM

Laurent Busca received a Ph.D. in Management Sciences from Université Toulouse Capitole. He is interested in the enactment of routine marketing practices and the way these practices influence the shaping of markets. Integrating various theoretical perspectives such as Critical Realism, Practice Theory, ANT, Foucauldian Theory and Neo-Institutionalism, he analyses the way marketing routines interact with material artefacts in order to intertwine and destabilize cultural structures of representations and how these mechanisms cause market evolutions. This interest led him to investigate the historical evolution of digital marketing and epistemological issues in marketing and management sciences.

He is now involved as a member of the Cit.Us Research Chair on uses and practices of the Smart City.
