Elite Discourse and Transnational Practices

(p.56) Chapter 2 Portuguese Migrants and Portugal
A Century of Transnationalism

Victor Pereira

, Miguel Cardoso
University of Illinois Press

This chapter first examines the discourse produced about the transnational practices and policies by the Portuguese state, used to maintain its ties with its citizens living abroad. It then turns to the transnational practices “from below.” In this case, it is a matter of seizing the discourse and practices over the long term, from the independence of Brazil, in 1822, to the present, and of teasing out continuities without papering over the breaks. The chapter begins by characterizing the key Portuguese migratory flows throughout the course of this period before going on to discuss three topics: the continuity of a discourse on the protection of migrants, the place of emigration in the national imaginary, and the close ties between emigration and empire.

Keywords:   Portugal, Portuguese emigration, migratory flows, Portuguese migrants, translational practices, migrant protection, national imaginary, empire
