Des valises bien pleines : Circulation matérielle de la France vers le Brésil dans la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle et au début du XXe siècle

Abstract : Although the old Latin American colonies earned their independences in the early 19th century, it didn't necessarily involve a divorce from Europe, but rather a shift in focus throughout the century towards other culturally prevailing European centers, such as Paris, London and Berlin. In this way, it is interesting to examine the circulation of commodities carried by travelers between France and Brazil, while keeping in mind that it took place in a market widely dominated by Great Britain. This circulation could be broken down into three categories : luxury products, cultural goods and latest innovations. We observe that although French trade in Rio (French stores) has existed since as early as the beginning of the 19th century, the travelers' network and the importation of goods for personal use cannot be neglected, and the Brazilian elites, who have been increasingly traveling to Europe since 1850, often carried far heavier suitcases on their way back than on their way to Europe.
