RIOJAS, Carlos. Latin America between prominent narratives and the age of global history. Am. Lat. Hist. Econ [online]. 2018, vol.25, n.3, pp.7-39. ISSN 2007-3496.

The article has as objective to determine what is the specific weight that Latin America has acquired as main topic in the narratives of global or world history. I have used as evidences the Journal of World History and Journal of Global History. The paper is organized as follow: first, I made a brief reference to these metanarratives and Latin America; then, I explore the publication of the Journal of World History to identify how much has been written, in absolute and relative terms, about Latin America as main topic; after, I apply the same methodology to the Journal of Global History; finally, I try to contextualize the results based in the recognition of several factors that help us to understand the conditions to make history under an institutional perspective.

Palavras-chave : global history; world history; Latin America and Caribbean; periphery; core.
