The "Theory of History on Wikipedia" project is an initiative of professors PhDs Flávia Florentino Varella and Rodrigo Bragio Bonaldo of the Department of History at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC). It aims to contribute to the dissemination of historical knowledge to large audiences via an open and universal access platform known as Wikipedia.

The initiative also joins the "Wikipedia at the University" Project, supported by its ambassador at UFSC, Felipe da Fonseca. The purpose of the project (as it appears on its website) is to "encourage students, teachers and universities to use Wikipedia as a teaching tool, enabling new Wikipedians to develop skills and competences,enrollingg in collaborative productions of free knowledge, mainly contributing to the improvement of quality on the Portuguese Wikipedia".

Finally, the project is also allied to the Wiki-South group's campaign where "Wikipedia at the University" activities are developed.
