Project Description

This project will investigate accounting and accountability as a primary driver of both managing and governing, as exemplified by managing via accounting, in both contemporary and historical settings. The project aims to conceptualise accounting in new ways that will pay special attention to accounting as naming and counting from its invention to Mesopotamian 3,000 BC before writing. It will also analyse more contemporary settings where accounting’s naming and counting is constitutive as sustainable development/management. This will include managing by targets, cost/benefit decisions and dilemmas, and will consider the extent and the forms in which managing via accounting may systematically transform ways of thinking, acting and how we live our lives.
