General conference topics

In summary, the international Congress on the History of Archives, Documents and Information (CHADI) aims to explore a number of aspects of how texts and information were generated, transmitted, disseminated and preserved in the past.

CHADI wants to study the History of the archives and their document collections from very different points of view. We also aim to analyze diverse aspects of other texts and documents–whether they were archived or not–researching from the creation of a document, its use, generation and preservation, to the transmission of memory, the dissemination of the information, as it was not found or spread through written texts alone. Information and memory did not remain exclusively in the archive, nor were they transmitted solely through the written medium, nor were they merely static materials in the form of dusty documents in a chest. It should also be remembered that outside of the archive there were numerous scattered documents (a good example would be an announcement or proclamation). Studying these as a whole, among which many data might be found to dialogue and complement each other, will illuminate another vision that will further detail the social role played by using, transmitting, preserving and disseminating the oral and written information in the past.

Starting from this basis, we invite you to submit proposals in any of the aforementioned areas, or others that refer them directly or indirectly. All approaches are welcome, ranging from the most classic and descriptive in the history of document and book conservation, to the most innovative and interdisciplinary.
