This collection of original essays written by transitional scholars invites us to rethink the ways African-descended men are seen as both appealing and appalling, are exposed to eroticized hatred and violence and how some resist, accommodate, and capi­talize on their eroticization. Drawing on James Baldwin and Frantz Fanon, the authors examine the contra­dictions, paradoxes, and politico-psychosexual implications of Black men as objects of sexual desire, fear, and loathing in the transnational context.  The editor and select contributors will describe their work, participate in a discussion and engage with the audience.
