Romani Studies through Romani eyes
Editor: Damian Le Bas, Thomas Acton
“A fresh and thought-provoking collection... [it] offers access to a variety of noteworthy academic opinions from the Roma, Gypsy and Traveller communities. All Change! opposes the accepted culture which debates and makes decisions about Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities without their consultation. It does this by raising the voice of these communities in the academic arena and adding new insight to existing research.”
About the book
The welcome emergence of a Gypsy/Roma/Traveller academic and intellectual community has stimulated new reflections on and reassessments of many of the established ideas surrounding Romani history and culture.
New questions are being asked and, in turn, new critical challenges have arisen, in part because, for these individuals, Gypsy identity has never been something exotic and Other, but their own.
