The Accounting Historians Journal and the Academy Accounting Historians section of the AAA are pleased to sponsor a two part research webinar on Friday, March 17, 2023 from 10:00 am- 1:00 pm Eastern and Friday, March 24, 2023 from 10:00 am- 1:00 pm Eastern.

This will be our fifth annual two-part mid-year webinar. The theme, Letting the Past Illuminate the Present will likely appeal all accounting history researchers. PhD candidates are particularly encouraged to submit papers. The purpose of this research webinar is to provide detailed and insightful commentary on accounting history papers to facilitate publication in the Accounting Historians Journal and other quality journals. Each paper will be assessed by two (blind) reviewers in addition to a discussant and the other participants. In advance, all participants will receive copies of the papers. After the two blind reviews, papers will be accepted for presentation, with four presented on each of the two days.

For more information and/or to submit a paper, please contact past AAH president Gary Spraakman,

Submissions Deadline: Monday, January 30, 2023, to Gary Spraakman,
