MEDEIROS, Gutemberg. 100 years of Atlantida: a continent of letters of Brazil and Portugal. Galáxia (São Paulo) [online]. 2016, n.32, pp.163-175. ISSN 1519-311X.

This paper analyzes one of the boldest editorial ventures checked early in the deployment of modern information journalism from American and French matrices. The magazine Atlantida: mensario artistico, literario e social para Portugal e Brazil was edited by two of the leading journalists of both countries, João do Rio and João de Barros (1915-1920) under the auspices of the respective governments. This proposal aims to raise elements of the press and culture and the media history. As daily journalism takes a turn prioritizing the most informative aspect, magazines emerge as space also dedicated to vehicular opinion and other media. How are methodological experience and innovation, national and international historiography (specifically in the history of printing), history of culture and the media interrelated? This magazine is inserted in-depth discussion on the Brazilian national identity, especially in response to the growing "antilusitanismo" reaching the climax in 1922. Therefore, we will describe the constituent elements of the magazine concerning its historical moment.

Keywords : Atlantida magazine; João do Rio; João de Barros; history of journalism; national identity.
