This internship project represents a fundamental part of the research that is underway at the Instituto de Estudos Brasileiros of Universidade de São Paulo, with support from FAPESP (File No. 2017 / 15764-7). The project refers to the study of the relations between Brazilian historiography and the Cahiers d'Histoire Mondiale, a journal created under the auspices of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco), from 1948 when the discussions and the conception of the periodical itself were being created, until 1972 when its last number was published. The essential research problem is the relationship between different historicities around the Cahiers, delimited to the transfers between the Brazilian and French historiographies, and taking into account the slow process of professionalization of historiography in Brazil. In this way, the research looks forward to collaborating with the understanding of the developments of the Brazilian historiography through time on a transnational scale. After a stage of research in Brazilian archives and in pertinent readings, the stage of research in foreign archives has come, and this is precisely the main reason for the existence of this demand for internship abroad. The primary archives to be consulted abroad would be the Unesco Archives, located in Paris. In the same city we can found the files of the founders of the journal, Lucien Febvre (1878-1956) personal files at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) and Charles Morazé (1913-2003) personal files, whose collection was deposited at the Maison des Sciences de l'Homme (MSH). In order to achieve this project we rely on the reception of the project at the Institut d'Histoire du Temps Présent (IHTP), under the supervision of François Dosse. Such reception makes possible the participation in seminaries of this Institute, such as "Figures contemporaines de l'histoire" or "L'histoire globale du temps présent", whose debates would increase the construction of the object and its epistemology.
