This special issue of CompLit. Journal of European Literature, Arts and Society engages with Black literary imaginations of Europe that reverse or complicate the (neo-)colonialist European gaze at the “African Other.” It brings together five original research articles exploring literary imaginations of Europe/ans in African and African diasporic narratives. These are followed by a series of interviews with eight international literary scholars on Black European research perspectives, theories, and future challenges and needs, as well as by a thematic review section. By focusing on the analysis of literary texts in different languages, the special issue aims to balance the predominance of historical and sociological research within African European studies and to demonstrate the important role of comparative literature for this emerging interdisciplinary field (and vice versa).
