Portal seeks to become a reference point for the gathering and
dissemination of information about the construction of
historical memory and its documental sources. The aim is to
“build bridges” between historians, anthropologists, archivists,
literature specialists, librarians and museologists, among
others, thereby forging links between research projects and
documentation and archive professionals.
This initiative, devised by the Archivo Histórico Ferroviario (AHF, Railway History Archive) of the Museo de Ferrocarril de Madrid (Railway Museum of Madrid), belonging to Fundación de los Ferrocarriles Españoles (FFE, Spanish Railway Foundation), and the Grupo de Investigación Antropológica sobre Patrimonio y Culturas Populares (GIAP, Group for Anthropological Research on Heritage and Popular Cultures) of the Centro de Ciencias Humanas y Sociales (Humanities and Social Sciences Centre) of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC, Higher Council for Scientific Research), seeks to promote, through the organisation of Conferences and the collective efforts and projects of other institutions, the dissemination of these Conferences, and to provide information and publicise all the projects related to these subjects.
