The PCHP | PHLC has begun a new partnership with Senso Magazine this month, with the publication of our first article in what we will be an ongoing collaboration. Our first article, “Introdução ao Projecto de História Luso-Canadiana,” is a sum of who we are, what we’ve done, and what we intend to do in the future. In the following issues, we will publish brief, illustrated articles, on various episodes, phenomena, or personalities of significance in the history of the Portuguese in Canada.
In the next issue, Susana Miranda will write on the topic of her research: Portuguese women cleaners in Toronto and their labour organization in the 1970s-80s.
The PCHP | PHLC thanks Ana Fernandes-Iria for giving us this opportunity, and assistiing us in the pursuit of our goals, namely to give the community access to its own history.
Hope you enjoy our articles and we look forward to hear your comments.
