Tuning History in Latin America
Velázquez Albo, Marco
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v16 n4 p358-370 Oct 2017
This article analyses the development and achievements of the area of History in the Tuning-Latin America Project from its launch in 2004 to its completion in 2013. Through two phases and nine general meetings, academics from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru, along with academics from Spain, Portugal and Italy, discussed the professional formation of future generations of historians. The debate centred on the concept of "competences" as the axis of training, a concept which generated innovative thinking and understanding but also friction due to specific historiographic traditions and regions. The Tuning-Latin America Project generated a significant body of documentation on the new challenges implicit in training historians in a globalized world. However, it has not received sufficient analysis from the Latin-American perspective. This article contributes to this by providing insight on the Tuning Project's successes and limitations in Latin America, as well as evaluating its progress more than a decade after it was introduced.
