We are delighted to have Catriona as the Accounting History Symposium guest speaker for 2018.
In addition to the presentations of research working papers, proposals, and papers in progress concerning studies of accounting’s past, a panel of scholars will be in attendance, making presentations and/or providing feedback on the papers and proposals of other participants. The 2018 panel comprises Carolyn Fowler of Victoria University of Wellington, joint editor of Accounting History, Grant Samkin of University of Waikato, associate editor of Accounting History, Catriona Paisey of the University of Glasgow and Sandra van der Laan of The University of Sydney, who are editorial board members of Accounting History.
