Phd defense on Roma

Phd defense of Huub van Baar: The European Roma
Last Wednesday I visited the Phd defense of Huub van Baar at the University of Amsterdam. His dissertation is titled The European Roma: Minority Representation, Memory, and the Limits of Transnational Governmentality. I made a documentary film about a Roma (gipsy) family in 1998, so the topic interests me. His dissertation has more affinity with my interest in women’s and cultural studies though, and if I want to know more about the concept ‘governmentality’ his dissertation will probably the thing to read.
