How does accounting shape the past, present and future of society?

The Accounting History Journal and the University of Portsmouth announce a major conference; the eleventh edition of the Accounting History International Conference (11AHIC).

The conference is supported by the Accounting History Special Interest Group of the Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand and brings together accounting history researchers from all over the world.

Portsmouth has one of the greatest maritime heritages in the world. The University is located close to the Historic Dockyard, including the world-famous ships Mary Rose, HMS Victory, and HMS Warrior 1860, modern day naval battleships, and the National Museum of the Royal Navy.

There is a strong literary heritage in Portsmouth, being the birthplace of both the world-famous author Charles Dickens and the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Both are commemorated in the Charles Dickens Birthplace Museum and the ‘Study in Sherlock’ exhibition at the Portsmouth Museum respectively. Portsmouth is home to several castles and forts, including Southsea Castle, the Round Tower, and the Square Tower. The more modern Spinnaker Tower at Gun Wharf is stunning. Standing at 170m in height, the tower is taller than the London Eye, Big Ben, and the Blackpool Tower. It offers wonderful views over Portsmouth and the English Channel. Portsmouth also has two cathedrals and many churches, including the Garrison Church which was bombed in World War Two.
