CfA – Postgraduate Summer Course – “Romani Identities: Performance, Antigypsyism and Representation” - Central European University, Budapest, Hungary, 3 July - 14 July, 2017


This course ( will bring together academics and students with artists, activists and community stakeholders in a partnership that focuses on knowledge production and best practice. The school will be led by eminent Roma and non-Roma, and will feature outstanding Romani scholars and policymakers amongst its faculty. 


We are especially interested in recruiting scholars at an early stage in their career of Romani background, but do welcome applications by non Roma (Ph.D. students, postdoctoral fellows, junior faculty) with a proven relevant research and teaching record, in the field of performance studies, history, sociology, political science or related humanities and social science disciplines.

While the course is primarily aimed at encouraging those academics at an early stage in their career and those who are thinking of taking up an academic career to integrate Romani Studies and socio-cultural dimensions of performance practice and policy issues in their future research and teaching, it will also be of help to performance and other arts practitioners, policymakers and public servants, and others who deal with Romani communities in policy-making institutions. The interdisciplinary nature of the proposed course will most likely result in a diverse group of participants from a cross-section of disciplines and countries.

The application deadline is February 14, 2017. Financial aid is available.
