The Introduction explores the implications of mobility for the material and imaginative lives of Africans and people of African descent in Europe. It offers an account of the key terms ‘transnational’ and ‘practice’. It suggests some common themes of the chapters, placing an emphasis on how the case studies exemplify the ways in which border-crossing brings the relationship between public and private under stress, so that transgressive sexuality often plays a part in the lives and political imaginations of their transnational subjects. It also discusses the challenges to historical narration presented by the transnational approach and by subjects whose lives are lived in many places.
