Profile

Background

A graduate of Trinity College Dublin, Ingrid Jeacle trained as a chartered accountant with KPMG before pursuing an academic career. Ingrid joined the University of Edinburgh in 2000. She is an Associate Editor of the Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal and Financial Accountability and Management, and a past Associate Editor of the European Accounting Review. She is also a member of the Editorial Boards of Accounting History, Advances in Public Interest Accounting, Critical Perspectives on Accounting, and Qualitative Research in Accounting & Management. Ingrid is the founding member of the Accounting & Popular Culture Research Network.

Research interests

Ingrid's research seeks to broaden the scope of accounting scholarship by recognizing the richness in exploring the inter-linkages between accounting and popular culture. Traditionally regarded as trivial and unworthy of academic attention, research into the regular rituals that pervade the everyday is now a legitimate field of scholarly inquiry among social theorists. Such an investigation should reap rich returns in not only furthering an understanding of accounting, but also the ways and means in which accounting practices and notions of accountability permeate our everyday lives. Ingrid has guest edited a special issue on the theme of Accounting and Popular Culture for the Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal.

Ingrid's PhD examined accounting practices within the department store and since then she has published papers on the role of accounting in the areas of architecture, furniture design, tea drinking, shopping, fashion, travel, and cinema.
