4th Accounting History International ConferenceUniversity of Minho, Braga, Portugal7-9 September 2005
Accounting History is the journal of the Accounting History Special Interest Group of the Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand. The conference will feature papers which comply with the editorial policy of Accounting History. The journal publishes quality historical papers that may be concerned with the establishment and development of accounting bodies, conventions, ideas, practices and rules. They should attempt to identify the individuals and the local, time-specific environmental factors which affected accounting, and should endeavour to assess accounting's impact on organisational and social functioning.
Conference papers will be accepted across a wide range of topics, using a variety of approaches including biography, prosopography, business history through accounting records, institutional history, public sector accounting history, comparative international accounting history and oral history. The use of theoretical perspectives drawn from relevant disciplines such as sociology, economics and political theory is encouraged in conducting investigative, explanatory studies of accounting's past.
As part of the 4th Accounting History International Conference, the Accounting History Doctoral Colloquium will be held on7 September 2005.
