Interdisciplinary Perspectives On Accounting Conference
11 July - 13 July 2012
Cardiff Business School
Call for Papers
The IPA conference is an established forum for research into the social, political and organizational aspects of accounting theory and practice. The organizers of the Tenth Conference invite researchers from all areas of the social sciences to contribute papers.
The Conference is the premier conference for the interdisciplinary study of accounting, bringing together accounting researchers with broad social science interests and researchers from other disciplines such as anthropology, organizational analysis, philosophy, political economy and sociology.
The organizers aim to highlight emerging intellectual issues and encourage new agendas, as well as stimulate debate within and between established paradigms, by arranging a variety of workshops, panel discussions and plenary debates. The IPA conference has long sought to respond to the concerns of an evolving research community. In furthering these concerns we invite keynote speakers from inside and outside of accounting. The plenary speakers confirmed for IPA 2012 are:
Professor Marion Fourcade (University of California, Berkeley)
Professor Michael Power (London Schools of Economics and Political Science)
Professor Richard Rottenburg (University Halle-Wittenberg)
A distinctive feature of the IPA is the constructive evaluation that each paper receives. The usual format of a session comprises the presentation of the paper by the discussant (approx. 20 min.), the authors' response (approx. 10 min.) and an open discussion (approx. 15 minutes). Reviewers and discussants are central to the continuing success of this conference and we encourage wide participation in the conference through the discussant process.
Emerging Scholars Colloquium
The Emerging Scholars Colloquium (ESC) precedes the main IPA conference. Emerging scholars in any field of accounting who are currently doing or recently completed a PhD are welcome to submit an application form. In line with the orientation of the IPA, the ESC promotes the interdisciplinary study of accounting. Accordingly, emerging scholars interested in, and working on, the social, political, and organizational aspects of accounting theory and practice are particularly welcome.
The aim of the ESC is to provide emerging scholars with the opportunity to discuss their work with each other as well as with established accounting scholars. The main feature of the ESC is the presentation and discussion of students’ PhD work. In addition, faculty members provide input on selected topics of wider interest.
The ESC of the IPA 2012 will commence early on Monday, 9 July, and finish Tuesday afternoon, 10 July. It is organized by Andrea Mennicken (London School of Economics and Political Science) and Martin Messner (University of Innsbruck) and brings together 8 faculty members who will provide constructive feedback:
• Chris Chapman, Imperial College London, United Kingdom
• David Cooper, University of Alberta, Canada
• Mahmoud Ezzamel, Cardiff Business School, United Kingdom
• Peter Miller, London School of Economics and Political Science, United Kingdom
