SOUCHAUD, Sylvain. A visão do Paraguai no Brasil. Contexto int. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.1, pp.131-153. ISSN 0102-8529. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-85292011000100006.
In this paper, I investigate the image of Paraguay that is conveyed in Brazil, how it is constructed and what forms it. I am interested both in the interpretation of historical events that marked relations between the two countries, and selective spatial representations of Paraguay circulating in Brazil. Particular attention is paid to the Brazilian perceptions and representations of migration flows that form on either side of the international border, this is to say Brazilian migrants in Paraguay and Paraguayan migrants in Brazil, because international migrations, as contact situations, are responsible for the production of reciprocal representations
