Abstract

This is a proposal of continuity of the researches on censorship initiated with the thematic project A cena paulista: um estudo da produção cultural de São Paulo, de 1930 a 1970, a partir do Arquivo Miroel Silveira (AMS) da ECA-USP, that had as main research source the archives of the public organism responsible for previous censorship to the theater in the Sao Paulo state. After presenting the previous research results, it introduces a proposal that involves activities of information management - related to information architecture and the AMS documents restoration and digitalization - and of theoretical research. This one will keep the main focus on the freedom of expression constraints, but enlarging its attention to other ways of expression and its links with what happens in other countries and in the contemporaneity. Then, the new research axes are: a) communication, censorship and freedom of expression in the contemporary world; b) freedom of expression: manifestations in journalism; c) censorship, media and non professional theater: anthropophagi’s and crossbreeding; d) audiovisual production and research. The methodology utilized will involve bibliographic and archives research, interviews, documentary and law analysis, and the strong use of audiovisual resources. (AU)
