Portuguese migration and its media
[A emigração portuguesa e os seus meios de comunicação social]
Sónia Ferreira*
This text makes a brief characterization of the social media produced by Portuguese emigrants and their descendants. However, a descriptive and chronological analysis is not carried out, but in order to look at this reality in a problematic way, questions that, for this purpose, are identified as structural. The discussion based on these questions is illustrated with examples from a variety of empirical contexts, notably from France, Canada, and Brazil.
