Guest edited by AiE fellow Dezső Máté (KWI Essen), the thematic issue of the international journal Critical Romani Studies ( Vol 4, No. 1) – “Roma LGBTI, Feminist Movement and Scholarship” – explores intersectional identities and intersectional marginalization of Romani LGBTI and Romani women in different European countries.
All articles are open access and freely available here.
In his foreword, Dezsö Máté writes:
“Until the 2010s, due to socially normalized antigypsyism, LGBTI-phobia, and structural social,
institutional, and academic oppression, Romani LGBTI people as well as feminist activists and intellectuals lacked voice, visibility, and representation in mainstream movements and scholarship. In the early 2000s there was a turning point in Romani history, as physical resistance shifted to intellectual resistance in the field of knowledge
production .”” (See page 5)
