Inaugural Conference in Romani Studies
University of California-Berkeley
November 10th, 2011

In preparation for the inaugural Romani Studies Conference at the
University of California, Berkeley this November, we seek papers
within the burgeoning field of Romani Studies. By examining and
exploring the various strategies by which Roma have represented
themselves and others, both in dialogue with and apart from the larger
societies in which they live, the Inaugural Conference in Romani
Studies seeks to support the continued development of this
rapidly-growing field. We seek new studies of the uses of Romani
images in non-Roma cultures, contemporary social and political issues
facing Romani communities across the globe, and Roma-related research
in the fields of literature, film studies, religious studies, genocide
studies, art history, anthropology, history, sociology, linguistics,
and political science, among many others.

This conference is supported by University of California, Berkeley's
Institute for Slavic, Eastern European, and Eurasian Studies in
partnership with the Institute for European Studies through an
initiative of the Jewish Studies Program. The conference’s keynote
speaker will be Dr. Ian Hancock, Director of the Program in Romani
Studies and the Romani Archives and Documentation Center at the
University of Texas, Austin.

Roma

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
