The phenomenon of migration, broadly defined as the movement of people from one place to another, has highly increased in contemporary societies. This article deals with discursive expressions of Irish and Italian migrants, who arrived to Argentina during the second half of the !"!th and the early !!th Century, in an environment in which European migration has been encouraged by a politic and cultural project, oriented to populate the new born nation. By means of discourse analysis, the aim is to analyze uprooting experiences through the voice of the migrants and their families, whose memories are articulated in the sequential order provided by narrative patterns. Conceived as a case study, this textual approach, enriched by intertextual comparison, is oriented to identify common discursive strategies in different texts.
