Haynes, K. (2006) (Re)figuring accounting and maternal bodies: the gendered embodiment of accounting professionals. Working Paper. Department of Management Studies, University of York , York.
This paper examines the relationship between the body and the self for women accounting professionals. It explores how they come to embody the identity of accountant and what happens when forms of organisational and professional embodiment coincide with other forms of gendered embodied self, such as that experienced during pregnancy and in early motherhood. These forms of embodiment can be seen simultaneously both as a mechanism of social control, and as a form of self-expression and empowerment for women.
