Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Accounting Research Group highlights

The IPA Conference is an established forum for research into the social, political and organisational aspects of accounting theory and practice. The IPA Conference brings together accounting researchers with broad social science interests and researchers from other disciplines such as anthropology, organisational analysis, philosophy, political economy and sociology.

Professor Ezzamel of the Accounting & Finance Section will be awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the forthcoming British Accounting and Finance Association (BAFA) conference.

The last European Accounting Association (EAA) Congress saw 34 PhD students out of more than 150 who applied present their thesis work to 12 distinguished accounting faculty from Europe, America and Australia. The American Accounting Association and the Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand each send a PhD candidate from their Doctoral Consortia. 

The focus of the workshop, held 16 – 17 December 2013, was the IFRS Foundation’s International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) 13, Fair Value Measurement. Fourteen papers, chosen from over 50 submissions, were presented on the topic of the impact of ‘fair value accounting' upon organisation and calculative practices, and representations of Fair Value by analysts and the media. 

In July 2013, Professor Keith Robson joined a team of eight editors working under Editor-in-Chief Professor Christopher Chapman to manage one of the premier international research journals in accounting.

Members of IPARG are working alongside researchers at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the University of New Mexico (USA) to organize the second ‘Financial Reporting as Social and Organisational Practice Workshop’ due to be held at the LSE 16-17th December 2013.
