By B.H. Rebel and S. Makrinius


This research sets out to explore the influence of Eurocentrism and Afrocentrism on a particular case study: the South African curriculum for history and English. The emphasis will be on comparing the national curriculum with actual classroom situations. A secondary school in Pretoria will serve as a case study to analyse the South African curriculum and classroom situations based on the idea of Euro and Afrocentrism. The results of this case study will attempt to open the discussion on weather humanities should be based on a particular culture
