ERIAC IS LOOKING FOR RESEARCH ASSISTANTS TO SUPPORT THE “RE-THINKING ROMA RESISTANCE” PROJECT

 

 

TERMS OF REFERENCE – Roma Resistance Research Assistant

Job title: Roma Resistance Research Assistant

Duration of appointment: February 14th – April 14th, 2020

Deadline for applying: February 7th 2020

 

The European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC) is seeking research assistants to contribute to the development of the project “Re-thinking Roma Resistance”, financed by the EVZ Foundation.

 

Background information:

In recent years, the topic of Roma Resistance during the WWII has grown into a powerful symbol that contrasts the notion of Roma victimhood with the acknowledgement of Roma agency and survival. From researchers to the media, the stories of the Roma Resistance during WWII have begun to gain momentum. Inspired in various accounts of the Roma uprising at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp on May 16, 1944, the date has been embraced and celebrated by Roma communities across Europe, particularly by Roma youth. In this sense, the Roma Resistance has become a powerful reference point for Roma social and political mobilization. However, a narrow reading of the history of Roma Resistance – limited to the event of Roma uprising in Auschwitz – may reverse the transformative, emancipatory and mobilizing potential that the stories of active resistance represent and will overshadow the many other stories of heroism in the face of injustice of Roma individuals and communities throughout Europe.

 

“Re-thinking Roma Resistance” project, financed by the EVZ foundation, will develop an expended definition of “Roma Resistance” as well as explore and document its diverse manifestations throughout modern history in various geographical locations. The project will present a new narrative of the “Roma Resistance” which represents intimate and subjective experiences of the Roma survivors, witnesses and their families.

 

Objectives of the assignment:

Under the direct supervision of ERIAC’s executive management, four local researcher assistants covering different European regions will contribute to the implementation of the “Re-thinking Roma Resistance” project, by researching local stories of resistance in specific geographical areas. In collaboration with other partners involved, the researchers will provide regional perspectives on heroism during the WWII, and its aftermath, as well as during other chapters of European and national histories.

In particular, the researchers will be expected to:

Methodology:

Before engaging in the project, the researcher will be given a detailed introduction into the work of ERIAC, the objectives of the project, the expectations with regards to the development and submission of the final deliverables. The researchers will be provided with detailed instructions as to the outputs of the project.

Due to the restricted time-frame of this project, the report will be based on the following data-collection methodology:
