Abstract

This essay raises more questions than it can hope to answer. There is a great tendency for Departments of History in national universities of the region to over concentrate on the teaching of history that is confined within artificially defined national boundaries. University education which is an extension of the national education system often addresses issues raised within the curriculum of pre university schools. It is in the universities that research and teaching of histories continues to strengthen and consolidate the set-mind framework of earlier generations of national scholars. These custodians of national histories dawned the mantle of nationalism and fiercely defended their grounds of teaching and research. Breakthroughs in research are long in between and the daily routine that became the annual routine is the perpetuation of much the same about nothing new.
