Open Classroom: Roma/Gypsies at the Confluence of Myth and Reality
During this open class, students in PR 403.01 (Roma /Gypsies in History, Literature, and Pop Culture) will present, in teams, on various aspects of Romani history and culture and on representations of Gypsies in pop culture. Through these presentations, students will engage with a variety of fields and disciplines, including sociology, education, cultural anthropology, political science, psychology, and public policy as they examine Roma’s position at the confluence of myth, metaphor, and reality. They will discuss topics related to Roma’s current situation in Europe (including the effects of institutionalized antigypsyism) and/or examine the production and dissemination of stereotypes and tropes associated with Gypsies/Roma.
