Mi Piace La Nera!

Are there certain historical and social practices in Europe that suggest that the Black gendered body in Europe carries with it certain sexual and cultural constructions
(in the Western gaze)?

At the level of the State and at the everyday in what ways
is this migrant African (and African descendants in the Diaspora) body simultaneously visible and invisible?
Whenever cultures jangle, mingle
clash, contact or interact how is (an)other figured in the (an)other's imagination
and what factors inform this gaze?
