Tramitar y transmitir un pasaporte comunitario Reconstrucciones de la memoria genealógica familiar

Abstract : With a past of mass European immigration, Argentina has become, during the second half of the twentieth century, a country of emigration. Europe and, in particular, Spain are the most attractive destinations for a population strongly affected by the successive crises of the 1990s and 2000s. In a context of restriction of migratory flows and in a perspective of selection of the migrant labour force, Spain provided a series of legal mechanisms for recovering nationality, making it possible for numerous Argentines to apply for Spanish nationality, while Italian legislation allowed since the beginning of the 20th century the preservation of the nationality of origin. For Argentines of impoverished middle classes, obtaining a community passport essentially implies access to a regime of circulation that is less restricted throughout the world. The formalities for this recovery of a "latent" nationality lead to the mobilization of family memories. In turn, administrative routes and migratory routes in Spain reconfigure genealogical accounts. Dynamic processes, family memories are inscribed in the Argentine national imaginary and in European history. The identification to a European origin allows to effectively legitimize the presence in Spain, and thus, to fight against the discrimination directed to the migrants of Argentine origin.
