Kempster, S. and Turner, A. and Heneberry, P. and Stead, V. and Elliott, C. (2015) 'The "finger puppets" : examining the use of artifacts to create liminal moments in management education.', Journal of management education., 39 (3). pp. 433-438.
The resource review we examine here is provided by the Unemployed Philosophers Guild (http://www.philosophersguild.com/Finger-Puppets/). On the company’s website they comment: “. . . we have discovered that people seem to really like the giants of our culture reduced to little finger puppets . . .” In particular, we consider the use of the “finger puppets” to generate a liminal moment (Hawkins & Edwards, 2013) in management education. Liminal moments have been described as “moments in and out of time” (Delanty, 2010, p. 31). A sense of “neither here nor there; they are betwixt and between the positions assigned and arrayed by law, custom, convention, and ceremony” . . . that allow for the “realm of pure possibility” (Turner,1967, p. 95). We explore the use of this resource as a liminal tool and its value to management education.
