Abstract
Based on transnational anthropological fieldwork between the Casamance (Senegal) and Catalonia (Spain), this paper explores the practices and discourses of going about diversity and difference in public space in both contexts. Stereotypes, expectations, values and experiences influence, and are reflected in, the practices and discourses of the numerous Casamançais migrants in Catalonia. Thus, there are many dimensions of conviviality, the living-together in a shared locality. The ways of going about everyday life in the public sphere offer an important entry point into its comparative analysis. It is in the public where conviviality is negotiated and practised.
