CfA – Postgraduate summer course “Romani Identities and Antigypsyism” at Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary, 6 July - 10 July, 2020

December 4, 2019

The Summer School will focus on the nexus between Romani identities and antigypsyism. Antigypsyism is a core concept of critical Romani studies, and can be used methodologically, analytically and theoretically as a way of understanding the position of Roma in Europe historically and in the present moment. A growing body of scholarship grounds our understanding of antigypsyism in the Europeanization of the Roma issue and neoliberal regime expansion following the fall of communism. Other scholars originate antigypsyism in the nation-state building process.
