CEU Summer University: Performing Romani Identities

ceu 545

Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary, in cooperation with Open Society Foundations, invites graduate students, junior or post-doctoral researchers, teachers and professionals to apply for the Summer School course "Performing Romani Identities: Strategy and Critique".

The course will focus particularly on the enduring hierarchies, exclusions and stereotypes that Romani communities and individual citizens face in everyday life. It will explore artistic practice and will analyze the Romani histories across Europe and globally through the prism of post-colonial critique and the possibilities of decolonization.

The summer school 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.

Application from all over the world is encouraged and CEU Summer School is particularly interested in recruiting young scholars of Romani background 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.

The language of instruction is English, thus all applicants have to demonstrate a strong command of spoken and written English to be able to participate actively in discussions at seminars and workshops.

 


 

Financial aid is available.

General Application deadline: February 14, 2015
