Nation and Migration

Nation and Migration

German-Speaking and Japanese Immigrants in Brazil, 1850–1945

(p.115) 4 Nation and Migration
Immigration and National Identities in Latin America

Frederik Schulze

University Press of Florida

The purpose of this chapter is to show how “nation” and “immigration” were discussed in relation to one another in nineteenth and twentieth century Brazil. By focussing on “German” and “Japanese” immigrants in Brazil, who experienced most of the conflicts related to issues of nationality and nationalism, the heterogeneous character of migration is shown. The chapter describes how the two groups of immigrants positioned themselves towards the Brazilian nation and their nation of origin. Finally, the chapter will examine the role of immigration sociology and immigration policy in Brazilian nation-building after 1930, a policy which demanded the assimilation of immigrants to the nation.
