Research in progress

Researchers at the Graduate School of Archives and Records Management of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona have different research profiles and follow different lines of research in a variety of disciplines.

This is also a reflection of the close relationship the school has with different organisations, government bodies and companies to promote applied research and the joint solution of problems arising in the sector.

These are the projects currently being undertaken:

  • Family letters of Catalonia (16th-19th century): inventory, study and dissemination
The project aims to gain a broader understanding of ego-documents to build up an inventory of family correspondence from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century. These letters are held, often randomly and forgotten, in archives and libraries in Catalonia. Exhaustive research is being carried out in all Catalan document centres, from the national archives such as the Archive of the Crown of Aragon, to the provincial, county, municipal, ecclesiastical and heritage collections.
