BARBOSA, Muryatan Santana. The construction of the African perspective: a history of the General History of Africa project (Unesco). Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.64, pp.211-230. ISSN 1806-9347.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-01882012000200012.

This article analyzes the construction of the African perspective in the General History of Africa project (GHA), focusing on the period between 1965 and 1979. With the participation of over two hundred international experts under the auspices of Unesco, this was one of the greatest intellectual projects of the twentieth century. Based on primary sources, this analysis emphasizes the internal conflicts involved in the construction of the African perspective as a hegemonic line of thought in the GHA. Two critical moments of the project were found in the investigation: the controversial years (1972-78), and the pragmatic years (1978-82). As a result of these disputes, theoretical and methodological parameters were constructed, in addition to eight volumes of material published in the 1980s, and recently republished in Brazil.

Palavras-chave : African history; history of historiography; Unesco.
