I am so happy to announce this conference, starting tomorrow. I might say it was a great, indeed intensive, but wonderful experience to be engaged together with Thierry Hinger (UniLU / IPSE, CDMH), Nicolas Graf (CDMH) and other colleagues from CDMH and UniLu in the organization of such a conference. A detailed post on the developments of this conference might come very soon! I am very excited about meeting so many experts on the field and particularly interest in listening the participants of the actiivty “Conte a sua história” (Tell your story).
The conference “Luso-Luxemburguês?”, co-organized by the Documentation Centre for Human Migrations (CDMH) and the University of Luxembourg, in collaboration with several institutions and associations, is a first initiative that brings together researchers at international level currently working on Portuguese migration in Luxembourg. The public is warmly invited to participate in debates.

Conclusion by José Carlos Marques, CICS.NOVA.IPLeiria
“Conte a sua história”: recording testimonies
Here the collective of researchers on Portuguese immigration stops to listen to the community itself. This activity was inspired by the practice of public history, increasingly using digital and audiovisual resources in projects built with specific communities, sharing with them historian-researcher authority. This moment within the session “Tell your story” was planned to give way to the testimonies of Portuguese attending the conference that might wish to talk about their life experiences. Therefore, all of the Portuguese community in Luxembourg is invited to participate, regardless of age, profession, or date of arrival in the Grand Duchy. Other migration experiences are equally welcome. The microphone will be open to everyone!
