The papers assembled in this section were first presented in a panel entitled ‘Cultures of exile. Youth, slave trade and translocality’ at the October 2003 conference of the African Studies Association in Boston. We would like to express our gratitude to Christraud Geary, who chaired the panel, and to Peter Geschiere, who was the discussant. We are grateful for the constructive discussion engaged in by the audience and particularly indebted to Ralph Austen and Joe Miller for their input. We would also like to thank Michael Rowlands who was instrumental in encouraging us to elaborate this topic, and in bringing a panel together. Finally, our thanks go to Stephan Palmié for his comments on this introduction.
