Migration and Integration in the Lusophone World:

Historical, Current and Future Perspectives

Lusophone Studies Association & the Portuguese Studies Review

July 14, August 18, September 15, & October 20, 2021 @ 1pm (13:00) EST via Zoom

The movement and re-settlement of large numbers of people are an important facet of our current world. Significant populations of migrants and refugees from Africa, Asia and the Middle East are today re-locating to places such as North America, Europe, Australia, Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. Meanwhile, many from developed nations are also settling in former colonial states in Africa, Central and South America. Finally, significant internal migration is now a fact of life in many countries. Yet, while the movement of people to and from the English-speaking world has received a lot of attention, comparatively little scrutiny has been afforded to migration to, from and within the Portuguese-speaking (Lusophone) states. While significant populations of Lusophone migrants have moved from, within and across Lusophone nations, relatively less is known about these movements, or how these individuals are integrating.

These panels will gather together international experts on the history, current and future state of migratory movements to, from and within Lusophone nations. Topics examined will deal with economic, educational, cultural, linguistic, religious, colonial, postcolonial, pre- and post-migratory realities, both within Lusophone nations, as well as in locations which are receiving Lusophone migrants. Selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the Portuguese Studies Review #1 of volume 31 (2023

Proposals focusing on the following topics will be considered: 

  1. Current and historic patterns of migration to, from and within Lusophone nations

  2. Economic and political implications of migration, settlement and integration

  3. The effects of settlement and integration policies, practices and institutions (ex. multiculturalism)

  4. The roles of education, culture, nationalism, religion, and identity in promoting settlement and integration

  5. Forced migration (ex. transatlantic slave trade) and historical impacts leading to current social and economic conditions

  6. The role of colonialism and post-colonial practices or attitudes on the integration of migrants

  7. Return migration in the Lusophone world

  8. Inclusion and exclusion of migrants and their descendants

  9. The relationship between language, identity and integration

  10. The effects of new technologies on the settlement and integration of newcomers

  11. Lusophone literature dealing with the topic of migration and/or integration

Other themes related to migration, settlement, integration and belonging will also be considered.
