    accounting

    Hi,

    I want to know if the below sentence is grammatically correct? To my English knowledge it sounds a bit strange. Again, Does "accounting" refer to the science which is involved with figures and calculations?


    Gendering practices/structures: accounting and spacings as constructors of gender divisions
    The construction of divisions along lines of gender connects to the notion of spacings. Spacings are ways by which a space is partitioned according to certain priorities; they are demarcations of labour, of sanctioned behaviour, of positions in physical space, and of power.

    From the article "Accounting and Lived Experience in the Gendered Workplace"

    Thanks

    It appears to be grammatically correct. It probably has as much meaning as anything written in would-be academic style using state-of-the- art terminology.

    'Accounting' appears to refer to dealing with figures.

    Re: accounting

    Many university departments are factories for churning out content-free but impressive-sounding papers. The text may have meant something to the person who wrote it, but it's not likely to convey much to a reader.
