In this lecture literatures, cultures, history and the current socio-political situation of Roma in Europe will be discussed from the point of view of an author and Romani-activist. We also will focus on the possibilities of cultural education.

Topics discussed will be: the significance of (own) experience of alternity and migration when producing literature; Romani arts (literature, music, dance, visual arts, film), representation of Roma (“gypsies”) in literature and the arts produced by non-Roma (gadje); the current socio-political situation of Roma in Europe; analysis of prejudices and stereotypes; history of the Roma with special attention on the holocaust; language (Romani); different Romani groups; questions of education regarding Romani children; religion, rituals, traditions; trades; emancipation – the fight of Roma for equality.

I also will talk about my work in the field of cultural education, the project “cultural caravan” (in the framework of the association Rom e.V. Köln, http://www.romev.de/). I will discuss the outcome of lectures and workshops which I give at schools, universities and in the area of adult education http://www.romev.de/kunst-und-kultur-von-roma-in-koeln/roma-kultur-karawane/

All participants are cordially invited to attend the public events organized for the “writer in residence” in May 2015.
