Appel à communication “Accounting [in] History” / Conférence annuelle de l’Accounting History Review, Edge Hill University, 10-11 septembre 2019
This conference will build on recent scholarship in Accounting History Reviewthat demonstrates an important and impressive shift from accounting history to accounting inhistory – 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.
Our conference returns to our ‘Cardiff’ roots. Theoretical, empirical and review papers are welcomed in all areas of accounting history. We encourage studies that move beyond disciplinary boundaries and engage with historians in other research areas. The conference provides delegates with the opportunity to present and discuss, in an informal setting, papers ranging from early working drafts to fully developed manuscripts. The conference format will provide approximately 40 minutes for presentation and discussion in order to help achieve worthwhile feedback from those attending.
As in the past, many manuscripts presented at our annual gathering have subsequently appeared in print in Accounting History Review (previously Accounting, Business and Financial Historyedited by John Richard (Dick) Edwards and Trevor Boyns), or in another of the full range of international, refereed academic accounting, business and economic history journals.
The conference will be held at Edge Hill University Business School, St Helens Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 4QP, UK from lunchtime on Tuesday, 10 September 2019 to late-afternoon on Wednesday, 11 September 2019.
