Matthew Gill - Guest Lecture
The second Guest Lecture in this series will be from Matthew Gill.
Matthew will present on his research findings, some of which were published in 2009 in his famous book 'Accountants Truth'.
Matthew holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from the London School of Economics where he studied with Richard Sennett. He currently works in prudential policy at the Financial Services Authority. He was previously an Andrew W Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Washington University in Saint Louis, in an interdisciplinary program which seeks to connect the humanities and the social sciences. After reading English at King's College London, he became a chartered accountant and worked for four years at PricewaterhouseCoopers' London office, where his most recent role was to help businesses in financial difficulty. His experience of these two very different worlds motivated him to write this book.
