4TH WORKSHOP ON MANAGEMENT & ACCOUNTING IN HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE


BOLOGNA, DECEMBER 16-17, 2005
CHAIRPERSONS

Salvador Carmona
Instituto de Empresa (Spain)

Luca Zan
Universita degli Studi di Bologna (Italy)

BACKGROUND

The basic idea of this stream of workshop is twofold.
On the one there is an assumption that looking at management and accounting in a integrated way, or at least making these two areas of research interact, is useful in order to better understand socio economic systems, at different levels.
On the other hand, there is the assumption that an historical perspective will be worthwhile to understand the evolution of both practices and theories over time.
More than history per se, what is encouraged here is the adoption of a historical view, which could also have possible implications for our understanding of current debates.

Interdisciplinary papers and co-authorships are encouraged, involving also colleagues from business and economic history.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Within this framework, the workshops adopt a pluralistic research perspective.

· We welcome papers that provide a careful description of the events and contexts under investigation as well as theoretical studies, theorizing papers, and analyses of historiographies.

· In particular, we welcome submissions of international, comparative nature insofar this is an area that enables to map variety in management and accounting history and historiography.

· Therefore, we are interested in papers addressing developments that occurred in the Anglo-Saxon settings as well as those stemming from other traditions (e.g. Continental Europe, Scandinavia, etc). In particular, the need to overcome the western bias of management and accounting narratives and historiographies is perceived as urgent.

· In terms of kind of organizations, we encourage submissions that address profit-seeking firms that operated competitive environments along those examining the developments of organizations that were insulated from the markets effects and even deployed active agency to deter competition: state-owned monopolies, nobility, Catholic Church and other religious entities either in Europe or elsewhere.

· Finally, in terms of time span we seek contributions that examine the thoroughly studied period of 1850-1940 as well as those addressing investigation in earlier period, as for instance in proto-industrial and ancient settings, and, finally, contributions that develop a history of the present (up to well done longitudinal analysis of current organizations, providing “in real time” history).

In addition to submissions of regular contributors to accounting and management history journals and these workshop series at large, we especially encourage those from emerging and non-Anglo-Saxon scholars and form non western countries that strive to provide their research with international visibility, either within orthodox as well as non orthodox accounting writing.


Authors should send their full paper to Audrey O'Connor by November 10, 2005.
