Artist, curator and researcher Dr Daniel Baker, a Romani Gypsy who is currently curating FUTUROMA for the 2019 Venice Biennale, will be joined in conversation by three UCL anthropologists: Prof. Michael Stewart, leading expert on the ethnography and historical ethnography of Roma and Gypsies in Europe, and on Roma under the Nazis; Dr Anna Hoare, who will tell us about her research on post-nomadic architecture and settlement forms in Ireland and the UK and her work developing an an online interactive map of London from the perspectives of Romanies, Irish Travellers and Showpeople for the organisation 'London Gypsies and Travellers’; while Dr Judit Durst will share some of her research findings around Hungarian Roma labour migration to the UK and the hidden costs of changing social class for university educated Roma from disadvantaged family backgrounds.
