Roma: Where is Romanistan? It is everywhere!

Wed 22 Aug 2018| 6:00 pm- 8:00 pm

- Free
Parade of people with Roma flags

“Where is Romanistan? It is everywhere!”: everyday stories of mobility, settlement and diversity in Govanhill, Glasgow. As families seeking asylum, or as migrants seeking refuge from racism and harassment, Roma have moved to (and from) Scotland for decades. Professor Colin Clark will discuss historic and contemporary Roma mobility across Europe, and why Roma people have increasingly looked to Scotland as a place to settle and build new lives. In the current political climate of austerity and racism, solidarity is more important than ever, and even small acts of kindness or sharing experiences matter. In efforts towards hospitality, belonging and inclusion – Govanhill stands tall. Romanistan is in Govanhill, and Govanhill has a place in Romanistan – and our worlds are all the better for joining together.
