An article by Chief Diversity Officer and Professor of Africana Studies Donald Carter was published as a chapter in Africa in Europe: Studies in Transnational Practice in the Long Twentieth Century. “Blackness Over Europe: Meditations on Culture and Belonging” appears in a section titled “Post-colonial Belonging.”

According to Carter, the “chapter draws on observations from ethnographic fieldwork among mainly Senegalese migrants and their children in Italy to launch a sustained reflection on the shifting valences of ‘African’ and ‘Blackness’ in the context of a ‘Europe’ whose identity is itself subject to contest and transformation in the 21st century.” He said the chapter also “considers the value of such new terms as Afro-pean and Afro-Metropolitan which have been coined to encompass the complexity of heritage and cultural location.”

Africa in Europe was edited by Eve Rosenhaft and Robbie Aitken and published by The University of Liverpool Press. According to the publisher’s website, the book “explores the lives and activities of people of African descent in Europe between the 1880s and the beginning of the 21st century.”
