We are launching the second course of Barvalipe Roma Online University in 2021

We are launching the second course of Barvalipe Roma Online University!


Bavarlipe Roma Online University is an online educational platform where Roma and non-Roma can access knowledge about the Roma identity(ies), history(ies) and culture(s) through a collection of high-quality lectures delivered by leading Roma scholars on topics ranging from the Roma Holocaust to Roma cultural productions. In partnership with Central European University (CEU), this project is part of ERIAC’s International Membership Engagement Initiative financed by the German Federal Foreign Office (FFO).


The second course of the Barvalipe Roma Online University, ‘European Roma History’, aims at developing historical narratives about the centuries of presence and contributions of Roma in various countries and regions of Europe and the world. To compensate for the lack of historical knowledge, the invited scholars will shape the understanding of Roma as integral to the mainstream national and regional histories. The course lectures will position Roma at the heart of the national historical discourses and not, as it has been until now, at its periphery.

The course will trace the local Roma histories in European countries and the Americas and include a reflection on the future of Roma communities in Europe.

To ensure that Roma and non-Roma benefit from the course, most lectures will be delivered in local languages, with subtitles provided in English and Romani language.
