Nador utca 13, Room 118
With the occasion of Romani Resistance Day, CEU Romani Studies Program cordially invites you to the launching of the Critical Romani Studies journal.
Critical Romani Studies is an international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, providing a forum for activist-scholars to critically examine racial oppressions, different forms of exclusion, inequalities, and human rights abuses of Roma. Without compromising academic standards of evidence collection and analysis, the Journal seeks to create a platform to critically engage with academic knowledge production and generate critical academic and policy knowledge targeting—amongst others—scholars, activists, and policy-makers.
The journal is edited by a team of Roma and non-Roma scholars who cooperated in the past in organizing conferences and events, including the CEU Summer School on Romani Studies. CRS is published by CEU RSP in cooperation with the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture and it is part of the Roma In European Societies initiative.
The first issue of the open access journal is available from the 16th of May at https://crs.ceu.edu . Printed copies will be available at the launch event and the upcoming related conference “Critical Approaches to Romani Studies” to be held at Central European University on May 24-25, 2018.
After the discussion, RSP invites you to an exhibition by Aytac Kayacik, visual artist and student at the Roma Graduate Preparation Program. The exhibition event is co-organized with the CEU Center for Arts and Culture and will take place from 18:00 in Nador 9, Octagon.
Reception and networking will follow the events.
