Theme: “Archives and Collections from Oriental Antiquity: History and Methodological Possibilities”

The Colloquium aims to gather researchers interested in the multiple aspects of the constitution of collections and archives. The event offers an opportunity to reflect about the methodological approaches that may provide us with new perspectives on how archives were constituted and on how we can develop new research practice through these documents. Contributions are encouraged to evolve around the following topics 
1.    Document archives found in situ (commonly called archives).
2.    Reconstructed archives: dispersion process and protection in museums and collections; document’s circulation and collection building; typological classification vs. primary documents organization.
3.    Archival activity practices: the relationship between function and practice in different societies; registration practice and protection as a social process.
4.    Iconographic sources and material cultural objects as archives of social memory, identity articulators, and enactors of social and historical realities.

The abstract or abstracts must be sent through an attachment under the .doc format, and must have between 350 (minimum) and 500 (maximum) words, as well as 3 to 5 keywords.
We invite the authors to indicate the title of their proposals of communication and their names, followed by their institution (university, faculty etc.) as well as their level of education and the status held at their institution (e.g.: University of São Paulo, doctoral student) and their financing agency (when applicable), followed by their e-mail address.
