Prague Forum for Romani Histories

Romani History Seminar

Romani History Seminar hosts online discussions of unpublished texts, such as dissertation chapters, draft papers, and book chapters. Our goal is to bring together specialists in Romani history and scholars from related fields to provide collective feedback on ongoing historiographical work in an engaging, constructively critical, and supportive environment. Contributions from doctoral students and early career scholars are particularly welcome.

The workshop was initiated by Kateřina Čapková (Institute of Contemporary History, Czech Academy of Sciences) and Ari Joskowicz (Vanderbilt University), who are members of the steering committee of the Prague Forum for Romani Histories. Seminars are organized by Renata Berkyová (Prague Forum for Romani Histories), Théophile Leroy (School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences, Paris), and Vita Zalar (Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Ljubljana).

Information about individual seminars and links to Zoom registration are distributed via a Mailchimp email list.

If you would like to join our email list, submit a paper for the seminar, or have other questions, you can reach the organizers at berkyova@usd.cas.cz, theophile.leroy@ehess.fr, or vita.zalar@zrc-sazu.si.
