Abstract [en]

Radmila Mladenova analyses the function of Euro-centric representations of “gypsyness” in film and literature as projective identification, comparable to the blackface masquerade, but differing in their appearance. In my comment, I interpret her paper in a context of critical theory aiming at the core of racism, whereas Margaret Greenfields’ supplementary comment discusses what practitioners can learn from cultural analysis.
