The Centre for Social and Environmental Accounting Research (CSEAR) has held an annual congress in the UK (often and formerly referred to as the Summer School) for more than three decades, and other parts of the world in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and in both South and North Americas.
Similar to other CSEAR conferences, the 8th CSEAR North America Conference will be a deliberately informal gathering and discussion forum for researchers, teachers, students and practitioners concerned with social and environmental accounting, teaching and research in the very widest sense. Its emphasis is on a high level of interaction, discussion and debate in a friendly, supportive and relaxed atmosphere.
Attendees will include academics, practitioners and doctoral students at all levels of experience, and involved with all aspects of social, environmental, indigenous and sustainability theory and practice in accounting and other disciplines. As such, interdisciplinary submissions are encouraged, and both full and research-in-progress papers are welcomed.
We are pleased to welcome, as our plenary speaker, Tima Bansal, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Business Sustainability at the Ivey Business School; Director of Ivey’s Centre on Building Sustainable Value; Executive Director (and Founder) for the Network for Business Sustainability and Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.
The practitioner forum will be on “Sustainable Procurement” and will be led by Frances Edmonds, Head of Sustainable Impact at HP Canada, and Monica Da Ponte, founder of Shift & Build and sustainability consultant.
The event is co-sponsored by the Erivan K. Haub Chair in Business & Sustainability in the Schulich School of Business at York University, Canada and the Al and Nancy Burnett Eminent Scholar Chair in the Kenneth G. Dixon School of Accounting at the University of Central Florida, USA.
Submission deadlines for abstracts and full papers and well as timing for responses to authors will be posted here in due course.
