Abstract of Research and Education

Overview of Research
The main theme of my research is “sociological analysis of accounting institution”. Here, the accounting institution is assumed to include theories and practices related to accounting and auditing, as well as their education and research systems, and sociological analysis is assumed to be based on the topics of theoretical sociology, such as modernism, critical theory, structuralism, and anthropology.

Overview of Education
The central theme of my education is the relationship between corporations and society. I try to explain how corporations interact with various stakeholders, such as shareholders, investors, governments, employees, producers, customers, local communities, and the environment.

Recent Interests
I am interested in examining corporate and accounting systems not for business people or accountants, but for anthropos.
