Professor John Turner, Queen’s University Belfast.
This conference will build on recent scholarship in the Accounting History Review journal that demonstrates an important and impressive shift from ‘accounting history’ to ‘accounting in history’– from accounting historians to historians who examine multi-faceted social and institutional contexts through an accounting lens. Our studies contribute positively and authoritatively to discussions with respect to historically-informed and theoretically-informed research, especially into how history and organisation and management studies might learn from each other to provide richer narratives of organisational life.
This conference returns to its ‘Cardiff’ roots and offers a programme which includes a range of theoretical, empirical and review papers crossing disciplinary boundaries and engaging with historians in other areas. Papers to be presented include a wide spectrum of historically and theoretically informed research covering topics from diverse countries and periods extending from the late medieval to the twentieth century. Edge Hill University is proud to welcome researchers from around the globe to this event. This conference is supported by ICAEW’s charitable trusts and by the Trustees of the British Accounting and Finance Association (BAFA) and the executive committee of the BAFA Special Interest Group – Accounting History.
The conference will be held at Edge Hill University Business School, St Helens Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 4QP from lunchtime on Tuesday, 10th September 2019 to late afternoon on Wednesday, 11th September 2019. The conference dinner will be held at the Bliss Waterfront Hotel, Southport.
This conference is jointly organised by Professor Alisdair Dobie of Edge Hill University and Professor Cheryl McWatters, editor in chief of the ‘Accounting History Review’ journal. It is supported by ICAEW’s charitable trusts and by the Trustees of the British Accounting and Finance Association (BAFA) and the executive committee of the BAFA Special Interest Group – Accounting History.
