2015 (English)In: Antiziganism - What´s in a Word?: Proceedings from the Uppsala International Conference on the Discrimination, Marginalization and Persecution of Roma, 23-25 October 2013 / [ed] Selling, Jan; End, Markus; Kyuchukov, Hristo; Laskar, Pia; Templer, Bill, Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2015, 1, 24-28 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
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.
