CIVERA, Alicia. IMPLICATIONS AND CHALLENGES ABOUT THE ‘ESCUELA DE LOS CAMPOS’ HISTORIOGRAPHY IN LATIN AMERICA (XIX AND XX CENTURIES). Cuadernos de Historia [online]. 2011, n.34, pp. 7-30. ISSN 0719-1243. doi: 10.4067/S0719-12432011000100001.
The aim of my paper is to make a balance in the rural school historiography in Mexico, and through it, dialogue with those made in other Latin American countries. Instead of trying to have a joint vision of rural educational development in Latin America through a supposed progress, what really interests is to go beyond national barriers with the purpose of generating a debate about the heterogeneity of different local realities and theoretical-methodological perspectives.
