SEYFERTH, Giralda. Etnicidade, política e ascensão social: um exemplo teuto-brasileiro. Mana [online]. 1999, vol.5, n.2, pp.61-88. ISSN 0104-9313.

German immigrants played a significant part in the process of colonization based on small family holdings, which was initiated in southern Brazil in 1824. Processes of internal differentiation and social ascension took place alongside the formation of a German-Brazilian identity, in the context of territorial occupation centered on family-settlements in colonies. The distinctive aspects of this identity were based on the social and cultural specificity of the German colonies and on jus sanguinis, which contrasts with the imperatives of assimilation dictated by Brazilian nationalism as the condition of citizenship. This article looks at the question of social mobility in economics and politics, and controversies associated with sentiments of ethnicity, as seen in an area of German colonization in the state of Santa Catarina (Vale do Itajaí) in the first decades of the Republic; a period characterized by incipient industrialization based on commercial activity, and by the approximation of the German-Brazilian elite to national society.
