CALL FOR PAPERS: Special Issue of Critical Perspectives on Accounting – Critical Finance Studies
October 14, 2013
Thomas Bay, Stockholm University
Elton McGoun, Bucknell University
Critical Perspectives on Accounting is pleased to announce a Special Issue dedicated to Critical Finance Studies.
Although critical attention is regularly devoted to finance, it generally takes the form of a call for transparency, or the systemic repair and restructuring of a paradigm in need of a shift. While finance is clearly a societal domain ridden with crisis, our sense of critique embraces the possibility of risky confrontations with the external powers that drive finance, as well as with internal, ethical combats that impact on the commen-tator’s own situation within academic discourses on finance. We are, therefore, calling for contributions that take into account the relationship of the scholar to finance and to discourses on finance, including received values, moral codes, authoritarian knowledge, political correctness, academic manners, common sense, good will, opinion and implicit presuppositions. We also invite papers that approach finance through avenues that have been underexplored, such as theology, philosophy, art, ethics, film, subjectification, imagery, sociability, education, mediality, value, music, credit, beggary, gambling, vision, indebtedness, sustainability…. to give just a few examples.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically as a Microsoft Word file to Thomas Bay (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 31, 2014. All submissions should be made in accordance with Critical Perspectives on Accounting’s Guide for authors and will be subject to a double-blind review process.
