In Immigration and Xenophobia Rosana Barbosa discusses Portuguese migration to Rio de Janeiro from 1822 to 1850 as a significant aspect of the city's history. During the first half of the nineteenth century, many Portuguese fled the difficult economic and social conditions in Portugal for better economic opportunities in post-independence Brazil, which was experiencing a boom that was fuelled by such commodities as coffee.
Rosana Barbosa was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and is assistant professor of Latin American History at Saint Mary's University in Halifax, Canada. She is the editor of the book: Brazil and Canada in the Americas.
