  • History of women in the accounting profession.
  • Technological innovation in humanitarian crises.
  • The development of ‘special audits’ to investigate companies.
  • Giving greater voices to employees and other stakeholders.

Our Interdisciplinary Accounting hub advances agenda-setting research into how accounting, the profession, and calculative practices impact on the management of organisations and cultural formations, and define economic and social relationships. Areas of interest have covered accounting in rural communities, and accounting history research.

The establishment of the Culture, Accounting, and Society Research Network (CASRN) has enabled a significant advancement in understanding the role of accounting in crises, and the impact of crises on accounting and the accountancy profession: World War, natural disasters, hyperinflation, and humanitarian disasters.
