The Scholar as Squirrel : Everyday Collecting in Academia

Löfgren, Orvar LU (2015) In Hamburger Journal für Kulturanthropologie 2015(3). p.17-33
Abstract
This paper looks at collecting practices in the everyday world of universities. How do scholars turn into hoarding squirrels, creating their own archives? My focus is on routines and technologies, which deal with storage and order as well as retrieving and discarding of research materials.
