Accounting History Review Conference 2019

10th Sep 2019, 11:00am - 11th Sep 2019, 4:00pm

Business School

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.
