Theoretical line: The imprint of European population flows to America is, due to its magnitude and duration, one of the most necessary prospects for studying the transatlantic transit of people, ideas and goods during the contemporary era. However, the problem and uniqueness of the migration experiences of minority groups also traversed children, young people and women, who built, as historical subjects, strategies for the conservation and reproduction of their imaginary social and political cultural culture. Our workshop calls for the presentation of work by professionals, specialists and trained scientists on these groups of migrants and exiles in areas such as work, education, society, politics, culture and daily life. We seek to define the tactics to preserve, in such dissimilar experiences as emigration and exile, their cultural roots and the strategies they developed to incorporate new values of the host society. We encourage interdisciplinary and comparative exploration of the global flow of European cultural ideas and assets to America from the perspective of these minority groups to help document them in an inclusive way and discuss interests, needs and the new thematic vectors to strengthen this field of study.
