Abstract

TRUZZI, Oswaldo. Assimilation resignified: new interpretations of an old concept. Dados [online]. 2012, vol.55, n.2, pp.517-553. ISSN 0011-5258.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0011-52582012000200008.

This article proposes an interpretation of the ways by which the term assimilation was used in Brazil in three different periods. It also presents a reconceptualization of the term based on Remaking the American Mainstream: Assimilation and Contemporary Immigration, by Richard Alba and Victor Nee, published originally in 2003. The argument is that the new formulation proposed by these authors can contribute to a more precise understanding of the different trajectories in the incorporation of foreign immigrant groups in Brazilian society in the past and present.

Keywords : assimilation; immigration; national formation; cultural change; ethnicity; pluralism.
