Interdisciplinary research in accounting and finance and related areas is a major research activity. It contributes a range of insights towards underestanding and shaping the role of accounting, finance and related practices for individuals and in in organisations and society. Critical interdisciplinary reseaarchers are committed to the notion that a better 'accounting' can serve a better society or global context.
The Interdisciplinary Perspectives SIG was founded in 1997 in order to promote interdisciplinary research within the British Accounting and Finance Association. The group has over 120 members, the vast majority of whom are active in many fields of research and scholarship. Through its annual conference, the SIG provides a forum for interdisciplinary scholars to meet, present and discuss their research. It is of particular value to newer scholars and PhD students who appreciate the relaxed, colleagie atmosphere. The SIG also organises a special session at the BAFA Annual Conference.
