Romani Project

I had a chat today with Professor Yaron Matras of the University’s new Romani Project. I remember Yaron as a regular visitor to the University of Liverpool’s Special Collections and Archives when I was working on the Gypsy Lore Society Collections there years ago. The Romani Project is doing some innovative and important stuff for linguistic research – not to mention a helping preserve a language that is under threat – and it’s about time there was a feature on the Roma, but so far I’ve only come with up June as a possible slot, because of the Appleby Horse Fair. Any suggestions or contributions would be gratefully received!

And Romani slavery didn’t end in 1807 either.
