Appel à communication “Accounting [in] History” / Conférence annuelle de l’Accounting History Review, Edge Hill University Business School, 25-25 Juin 2021
This conference will build on the success of our 2019 conference at Edge Hill University to explore accounting in history – the examination of multi-faceted social and institutional contexts through an accounting lens. To underscore our theme, we are pleased to announce that Professor Mary O’Sullivan, Department of History, Economics and Society, University of Geneva will deliver our keynote address.
We welcome theoretical, empirical and review papers in all areas of accounting history. We encourage studies that move beyond disciplinary boundaries and engage with historians in other areas of the academy. The conference provides delegates with the opportunity of presenting and discussing, in an informal setting, papers ranging from early working drafts to fully developed manuscripts. The conference format will provide an extended time 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 History) 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 11h00 on Thursday, 24 June to 16h00 on Friday, 25 June 2021.

Cheryl S. McWatters, Editor, Accounting History Review
