    Seminars in the History of Collecting 2010: Call for Papers

    I would be grateful if you could forward this message to anyone you think
    might be interested.

    Seminars in the History of Collecting 2010


    The seminar series has been established as part of the Wallace Collection’s
    commitment to the research and study of the history of collections and
    collecting, especially in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Paris
    and London. In 2010, we aim at organizing a series of 10 seminars.

    We are keen to encourage contributions covering all aspects of the history
    of collecting, including:

    · Formation and dispersal of collections

    · Dealers, auctioneers and the art market

    · Collectors

    · Museums

    · Inventory work

    · Research resources

    The seminars, which are normally held on the 1st or 4th Monday of every
    month during the calendar year, act as a forum for the presentation and
    discussion of new research into the history of collecting. Seminars are
    open to curators, academics, historians, archivists and all those with an
    interest in the subject. Papers are generally 45-60 minutes long and all
    the seminars take place at the Wallace Collection between 5.30 and 7pm.

    If interested, please send a brief text (500-750 words) as a proposal.

    For more information and to submit a proposal, please contact:
