Early career researchers of Romani background (BA, MA, PhD) were invited to apply for a 3 day academic seminar on the uses of historical methods and sources in Romani Studies. The seminar focussed on planning and implementing research projects using archives and a wide variety of historical approaches (such as transnational, social, cultural, or oral history). Through lectures and practical exercises, participants gained hands-on experience of working with archival sources and planning longer-term research projects. Participants gave presentations about their own research interests. The workshop included talks with historians, librarians, specialists in archive management, and museum professionals, who together specialize in a wide range of historical and geographical areas, ranging across the modern history of Western Europe and the Mediterranean to Germany and East Central Europe.
