Afro-Europeans or Euro-Africans? Race and Identity in the Space of Cultural Diffusion
Languages of publication
The author gives basic information on the presence of Africans in Europe, their history, numbers and location. The article discusses the relations between Africans and Europeans in the context of slavery, colonial discourse, African students (intellectuals) and the so-called “Amie Noire”. The analysis is based on empiric examples coming from France, Great Britain, Holland and Portugal (marginally from Poland). In the end, three models of identity are analysed. The first model refers to “Afro-Europeans” – people whose prevalent experience is that of being perceived as “Black”. The second model refers to “Euro-Africans” – people of usually mixed background who chose European identity (French, British, etc) and are strongly integrated with the local society through their family relations and education. The third model refers to a group bearing strong features of diasporic consciousness, placing their identity in a transatlantic dimension.
