CFP: Accounting History International Conference 2017

The ninth Accounting History International Conference will be held in Verona, Italy, on September 6-7, 2017, hosted by the Department of Business Administration at the University of Verona. The theme for the meeting will be "Accounting and Governance in Diverse Settings." According to the call for papers:
While papers will be accepted across the full range of accounting history topics and methodological and theoretical perspectives, authors are encouraged to address topics relevant to the conference theme. . . . This involves studying accounting and governance in private, public and not-for-profit contexts, including charitable bodies, mutual societies, professional bodies and family businesses.
Papers, written in English and complying with the Accounting History manuscript style, should be submitted in Word format no later than March 1, 2017, to verona.ahic@rmit.edu.au. All papers will be subject to a double-blind refereeing process and will be published on the Conference Web site as refereed conference proceedings, unless otherwise advised. A special issue of the journal on the conference theme is scheduled to be published following the event.
    Plenary speakers are Carolyn Cordery of Victoria University Wellington and  Christoper Napier of Holloway College London. An Emerging Scholars’ Colloquium will be held immediately prior to the conference.
    Inquiries may be directed to the Conference Convener, Alessandro Lai, at alessandro.lai@univr.it.
