ERIAC and CEU Romani Studies Program launches the Barvalipe Online University
Date: September 1st – December 8th 2020
Bavarlipe Roma Online University is an online educational platform where Roma and non-Roma can access knowledge about the Roma identity(ies), history(ies) and culture(s) thorough a collection of high-quality lectures delivered by leading Roma scholars on topics ranging from the Roma Holocaust to Roma cultural productions. In partnership with Central European University (CEU), this project is part of ERIAC’s Roma Cultural History Initiative financed by the German Federal Foreign Office (FFO).
The first course of the Barvalipe Roma Online University will launch on September 1, 2020. The inaugural course, “Introduction to Roma Cultural History,” begins with the history of Romani arrival in Europe, traces Romani cultural, social, and political presence in Europe and ends with a reflection on the importance of contemporary Romani knowledge production. The course consists of 15 lectures delivered by renowned scholars. Together they comprise a complete curriculum of Roma Cultural History that proposes a canon and acts as a reference for Roma cultural history. Each week starting September 1st we will launch a new lecture that will be live-streamed on Facebook. Following each lecture premiere, we will moderate a discussion with the lecturer and invited guests in which the audience will also have a chance to ask questions.
