The scientific and cultural project dokumente.br aims at recognizing the active participation of German-speaking individuals, communities and scientists in the process of establishing, changing and structuring the Brazilian society since the 19th century. It is also intended to trace the abundant presence of German-language documents across Brazil. Because of the language barrier, most of those documents remain unexplored in the archives, museums, libraries and private collections in which they are stored. This initiative offers an important contribution to German-language studies in the context of non-German-speaking countries.
The project dbp digital – German-Language Press in Brazil is part of this initiative.
