Abstract: When compared to the conditions currently prevailing internationally, the history of economics occupies a privileged position within Brazil. After discussing some of the dilemmas that have affected the field over recent decades, the paper examines the distinctive elements that characterize the Brazilian scholarly community. Using a few quantitative indicators, we then present an overview of the current state of Brazilian training and research on the history of economics, analyzing the contents covered in courses, the role played in graduate and undergraduate education, the level of internationalization and the choices among different methodological approaches. The paper concludes by discussing some implications of the results for the future of the field in Brazil.
