Between Exoticization and Marginalization. Current Problems of Gypsy Studies

Elena Marushiakova, Veselin Popov

Abstract


The article presents different approaches and methodological problems that appear in the study of Gypsies who live in Eastern Europe, or of Eastern European Origin. Two basic paradigms of studying gypsies are discussed – their exoticization and their marginalisation. Studies of the Gypsies as well as their reception in social practice and policies can take on features of one or both of these two paradigms.
