The article, “The debate between postmodernism and historiography: An accounting historian’s manifesto,” was praised for its “significant contribution to the accounting history literature.”

Tyson, a professor of accounting in the School of Business, co-wrote the paper with Dr. David McCollum-Oldroyd, a professor of accounting at the Newcastle University Business School, located in the United Kingdom.
