Biography

<p><strong>Lawrence T. Corrigan, MBA, CPA, FCGA, PhD</strong> is currently Assistant Professor of Accounting at the Sobey School of Business in Halifax, Canada. His cross-disciplinary research program investigates the usefulness of qualitative research methodologies. Main areas of interest include accounting systems and the not-for-profit sector with a focus on municipal, university, and other governmental organizations.&nbsp;His research is inspired by the interpretive tradition of dramaturgy, and informed by critical historiography. Accounting is often thought of as mundane administration but instead is relational, theatrical and historically situated. Lawrence has extensive experience in the not-for-profit sector. He had previous roles as Vice-President, Finance of Saint Mary&rsquo;s University, President of the Certified General Accountants of Nova Scotia, and was the Chief Administrative Officer for the City of Dartmouth.</p>
