Academic profile

Previously preoccupied by Roma women, I continue to be interested in conjugality, sexual division of labor, pollution, clothing, representation of the Other and ethnical categorisation whithin Roma communities. Gender in Roma commnities is also a potical issue in the governance agenda of local and national policies: my actual research aim is to describe and analyse how the polical power deals with the ethnical definition of gender and how different contradictions occur in these spaces of negociation.
