D. João e as histórias dos Brasis D. João VI and the writing of Brazilian history

Abstract

O artigo, escrito em forma de ensaio, aproveita as celebrações dos 200 anos da chegada da corte portuguesa ao Rio de Janeiro para discutir o tema nacional na historiografia brasileira. Argumenta que o Brasil no século XIX era mais aspiração do que realidade e que sua história foi escrita quase que exclusivamente a partir do centro político localizado no Rio de Janeiro. A partir da década de 1930, São Paulo, via USP, teria disputado exitosamente com a capital a escrita de uma narrativa nacional. Hoje, a democratização de nossa produção historiográfica estaria alterando esse quadro e enfrentando novos desafios voltados para as relações entre o regional, o nacional e o internacional.The article, written as an essay, takes advantage of the celebrations of the bicentennial of the arrival of the Portuguese court in Rio de Janeiro to discuss the national theme in the Brazilian historiography. It argues that during the 19th Century Brazil was an aspiration rather than a reality and that its history was written almost exclusively from the political center in Rio de Janeiro. Since the 1930's, the state of São Paulo, through its University (USP), succesfully disputed with the capital the writing of national history. Today, the democratization of our historiographic production is changing this picture and facing new challenges regarding the relationship among the regional, the national and the international
