Call for Applications – CEU Summer University course on “Performing Roma Identities,” Budapest, Hungary (July 11-July 22, 2016).
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.
The CEU Summer University is especially interested in recruiting young scholars of Romani background, (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 young academics 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.
