Holocaust

Professor Ethel Brooks is currently examining the treatment of Romani people (Gypsies) around the world.   She is carrying out research on representations and practices of “being” Romani in various sites of the nation-state.  Brooks is one of a handful of Romani University scholars worldwide, and it has been especially critical for her to explore the comparative meanings and practices of Holocaust and post-Holocaust amongst groups affected by it both directly and indirectly. Her work on Romani people, citizenship, land tenure and violence engages post-colonial cultural formations and migrant communities alongside large native and migrant Romani populations from various parts of Europe and the United States.
