Press Coverage

Online Newspaper[edit]

"It is based on this idea of deepening the content that the professor at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), Flávia Varella, developed the extension project History Theory on Wikipedia. The project's idea is to use the platform - an easily accessible space - to spread knowledge. Students and teachers work building and revising articles with themes such as history theory, historiography, intellectual history, and the like."
"'Once I gave a lecture at UFRGS [Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul] and professor Benito Schmidt, who was there, even said that he used one of our entries, the one on public history, as the first text in the professional master's degree', reveals the professor, without hiding her pride."
