Our objective is carry out the study about periodical press published in French in cities such as Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, with a focus on the role of some intermediaries (passeurs culturels) in the creation of transnational networks of information and culture. This work is a deployment of the research about history of French periodicals circulation in Brazil (published in Paris) and developed under the Project Young Investigator/FAPESP- Cultural transfers in the press at the turn of 19th into the 20th century. The spatial area chosen is restricted to the most important cities in the period whose preserve these rare copies in archive collections. On the order hand, chronological benchmarks were imposed by preliminary corpus analysis, which leads us to believe that between the 1850s and 1930s were published in Brazil the most important and oldest periodicals (newspapers and magazines) in French. The theoretical approach is transnational perspective instead national focus that excludes foreign language press corpus of historiography about history of print media, more restricted to the studies on immigration. This proposal aims to contribute to investigators performed by members of the international network TRANSFOPRESS - Transnational network for the study of foreign language press - 18th-20th century and its corresponding Brazilian group - TRANSFOPRESS Brazil - Study of foreign language press published in Brazil and will be developed in LEIAH - Laboratory of International and Advanced Studies in History.
