Abstract

The contemporary world is composed of global processes based on mobility (Inda & Rosaldo 2002). While redefining their status as legal institutions of “national identities” (Anderson 1993, museums in the “era of migrations” (Peressut & Pozzi 2012) gather objects concerning populations in movement and reflect upon national, transnational and postcolonial identities(Macdonald 2003). Through new technologies, their physicality and locality is being redefine upon the emergence of transnationally sustained relationships, practices and identities. Concomitantly, a convention for the safeguarding of the intangible cultural heritage (ICH)(2003) arises with the objective of mitigating cultural homogenization in a context of globalization. ICH seems more portable than material heritage. In my research I analise contemporary movements of people and stuff, by focusing on objects and cultural practices that are circulating with Portuguese migrantes in Rio de Janeiro.
