During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, thousands of citizens from the Nordic countries migrated to South America. Most of the migrants ended up in North America, but some of them went to Brazil, and then continued to Argentina. In many places in Europe at the time, people spoke of ‘Tropics fever’ or ‘Brazilian fever’. The workshop aims at bringing together researchers who approach a number of issues related to Nordic migration from different theoretical perspectives within the Humanities and Social Sciences.
