Azorean Diaspora: the Migration of Azoreans to the America

The Portuguese Beyond Borders Institute will present a lecture “Azorean Diaspora, the Migration to the Americas” by Paulo César Câmara Teves, the director of Azorean communities for the Azores government. The community is invited to the free event at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23, at the University Business Center, PB 191. Sponsored by the Luso-American Development Foundation and Governo dos Açores, the talk will give historical insights into the various waves of Azorean migration and the expansion of their culture beyond the nine islands.

The Portuguese Beyond Borders Institute is a joint effort between Fresno State’s College of Arts and Humanities, the Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology and the College of Social Sciences.
