The Black Mediterranean is increasingly known as one way of understanding Black life and histories both within and beyond the racial geographies that circulate the Mediterranean. SA Smythe will discuss the ongoing colonial logics of xenophobia, anti-Blackness, and racial capitalism undergirding Europe’s self-initiated migration “crisis.” Drawing on Black trans thought and the poetics of abolition, Smythe theorizes oceanic crossings, arrival, Black belonging, and other diasporic attachments. SA Smythe (they [ENG]/lui [ITA]) is a poet and assistant professor of Black European Cultural Studies, Contemporary Mediterranean Studies, and Black Trans Poetics at UCLA.
