    construction of the self namely in the ways these people engage with different forms of material culture Although the Portuguese migration is not a new phenomenon recently there is an original flow that stands in relation to previous migration patterns While these were largely determined by economic constraints today we are witnessing a parallel movement characterized by societal symbologies that tend to privilege motivations more related to personal achievement and the desire for unique and diverse experiences Even though the current worsening of the portuguese economical panorama will certainly complexify contemporary migratory dynamics I believe that the importance of such trends shouldn t be eschewed There is a considerable amount of Portuguese young adults middle class and middle to upper education presently living in European capitals like London Amsterdam Barcelona or Berlin and guiding their experiences in these cities from cosmologies related to certain cultures of consumption and at the same time rejecting stereotyped ways of being a Portuguese immigrant What are the special features of such cultures What kind of sociability is created through the same Why do these individuals choose to regulate their world and define their identity in relation to these instead of a more traditional ethnic oriented way From the analysis of the relations of some of these young people with the material world at the level of consumption and cultural production I intend to seek answers to these questions and try and perceive how these relationships can lead to an understanding of the logic behind their belonging managements edit Advisors Prof Dr Marta Rosales Prof Dr Jan Rath edit Edit Done Editing Papers Barcelona next year hummmmmm the feeling in that city is amazing but still in love with Amsterdam Culture commodification the more by Vanessa Cantinho de Jesus Publisher conferencias cies iscte pt Publication
