Romani Identities and Antigypsyism

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. Some scholars define antigypsyism as an ideology and as a code of conduct that has been central to European culture.
The aim of this CEU Summer School is to link participating students and scholars with a transnational network of scholars in order to investigate the forms of oppressions faced by Roma and to analyze the mechanisms through which exclusion of Roma takes place in different fields of public life. A methodological, analytical and theoretical focus on antigypsyism serves as prerequisite for a multifaceted research agenda with strong policy implications. The questions this summer school aims to address are: What is antigypsyism? Is this the best term to be used? Is antigypsyism measurable? How to analyze antigypsyism? What are its manifestations? How is it produced and reproduced in different areas of public life? Is there a need to propose new terms to interpret and analyze the situation of Roma? What is the relation between antigypsyism and Romani mobility, often defined as nomadism? How is antigypsyism related to gender and class?
