The basic idea of this stream of workshop is twofold. On the one there is an assumption that looking at management and accounting in a integrated way, or at least making this two areas of research interact, is useful in order to better understand socio economic systems, at different levels. On the other there is the assumption that an historical perspective will be worth to understand the evolution of both practices and theories over time. More than history per se, what is here encouraged is the adoption of a historical view, which could also have possible implications for our understanding of current debates.
Interdisciplinary papers and co-authorships are encouraged, involving also colleagues from business and economic history.
