New book explores history of immigration into Brazil

The subject of immigration has gained renewed impetus due to new flows of immigrants that Brazil has been receiving, from other Latin American countries, Africa and Asia. As ever, current issues spark curiosity about the past, shedding new light on the matter.

A new book, History of Immigration into Brazil, organized by Luís Reznik and published by FGV Press, presents a collection of articles that explore the subject’s historic context, the Brazilian state’s immigration policies and international demographic and migratory movements. The articles were written by Rui Aniceto Nascimento Fernandes, Julianna de Oliveira, Fábio Koifman, Guilherme Cavotti Marques and Paula Ribeiro.

The articles focus on immigration in the 19th century, including the period known as the Great Immigration Wave, continuing up to the 1950s, when there was another major wave of immigration after the Second World War.

To officially launch the book, FGV Press will hold a discussion about it on April 15. The event will feature the book’s organizer, Luís Reznik, and professors Marieta de Moraes Ferreira, Lená Medeiros de Menezes and Paulo Cesar Gonçalves.
