Living with Difference Otherwise

  • Tilmann HeilEmail author
Part of the Global Diversities book series (GLODIV)


The question introduced is how migrants make their way within changing social contexts of cultural complexity. The knowledge derived from pre-migration experiences of ethnic, religious, and linguistic difference and power asymmetries, and gathered during migration and upon arrival is at the heart of this comparative ethnography of Casamance and Catalonia, which traces continuities and change. Grounded in situational analysis, I draw from practice theorists as I am primarily interested in people’s creativity and tactics as opposed to hegemonic constraints. Different from its common use, the process of conviviality embraces conflictual and cooperative situations. I analytically juxtapose conviviality to cosmopolitanism and civility and introduce the basic practices of interaction, negotiation, and translation and their co-constitution with convivial space. The chapter ends with a methodological reflection.
