Alternative Accounts Europe Conference, 13 September 2017, Sheffield University Management School;

Co-organised by The Interdisciplinary Perspectives SIG and CRAFiC, University of Sheffield.

This conference aims to bring together faculty and doctoral students who are working within the broad category of the interdisciplinary and critical accounting project. As the conference title implies we intend to provide a space to showcase research that is challenging to perceived wisdoms both in terms of content and form. To that end we are delighted to announce that the plenary speakers will be:

Professor Sonja Gallhofer (University of Glasgow) on "Accounting, Art and Emancipation: Exploring Possibilities"


Professor Robin Roslender (University of Dundee) on "Revisiting the sociological turn in interdisciplinary and critical accounting research - what came, what went and what just got forgotten"

Further, building on Professor Gallhofer’s plenary there will be a stream devoted to accounting and art convened by Dr Helen Oakes (see full call for papers overleaf). We seek papers from all accounting sub-disciplines including but not limited to financial reporting, management accounting, financial management, auditing, tax, and corporate governance. Further we welcome the involvement of finance colleagues working on behavioural, emotional and critical finance studies. The use of a variety of theoretical and methodological framings and empirically or theoretically-based or a literature review papers are welcome.

Paper acceptance will be judged based on the originality and significance of the paper, emphasising how the work provides an alternative understanding to the subject matter.
