Critically Reflecting on Accounting Violence: Matters of the Hearth

Gloria Agyemang, Cheryl Lehman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Our examination of accounting and violence aims to reinvigorate what it means to provide accountability and visibility given that knowledge and values are socially constructed. The authors follow the legacy of critical accounting research in this essay, using counter accounts, shadow accounting, and narratives to uncover the discipline’s relationship to violence, women, and migrants.
