Twenty-one years of critical resistance—almost: A reflection

  • Gaffikin, Michael

Abstract

This is a paper presented to accounting researchers at the 20th annual research conference at the University of Wollongong. The conference was designed to promote accounting research employing alternative and qualitative research methodologies. The paper is a reflection on the history of the conference and presents a call to researchers to maintain the spirit of critique that was the original intention of the conference. It argues that research informed by poststructuralist philosophers is a most appropriate basis for such research.
