Description of Activity

The workshop is based on a special issue of the Identities journal on Romaphobia and the Media published in December 2017.

Presentations and discussions examine the images of Roma people that are reproduced and circulated by the media and the public sphere. The panel discussion involves both Roma and non-Roma professionals working in or on the media; participants will reflect on how stereotypical images get reproduced, and how they themselves tackle such misrepresentations in their working lives.

The main language of the presentations will be in English, the panel discussion will be held in Hungarian. English-Hungarian interpretation will be ensured throughout.

This workshop is organized in collaboration with CEU's Romani Studies Program (RSP).
