“Unauthorised encampments”, “Moveable Dwellings” and “Invasions”: Restrictions and Resistances from Centuries Old and New

In our research project, exploring Romani contributions to EU public space, with a focus on markets and fairs in the UK and in Germany in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, we find Romani and non Romani actors caught up in events that are embedded in, or lead up to, world wars, changes in economies, industries, and urban and rural societies, and with this documents and occurrences that are at once distant from and reflective of contemporary issues and actions.


Searching for Roma activists’ traces

Spanish Team is happily busy in these months. Since July, we have been working in different archives and documentation centres trying to follow the traces of the Romani figures we seek to know better: Helios Gómez, Sandra Jayat and Ronald Lee, among others.
