The aim of this CEU Summer School is to link participating students and scholars with a transnational network of scholars, performers, community activists, and artists in order to investigate the usage and potential of critical performance as a socially engaged practice within and between Romani communities. The questions this summer school aims to address are: What is the relationship between Romani performance, Romani iterations of performativity and hegemonic knowledge production? What are the slippages amongst these practices? What is the potential in these slippages and iterations for different forms of agency, especially in light of the current violence confronting Romani subjects across Europe? The summer school will serve as a platform from which we can develop communities of scholarship and practice that feature Roma at their center, as well as a mentoring network, scholarly outputs and practical engagement with Romani communities through performance, artistic and scholarly practice.
Key topics will include Romani identity, Policy making towards Roma, Critical social sciences, The state of Romani studies, Romani women and feminist perspectives, Antigypsyism, Mobility and nomadism, Performativity and Romani identity.
