This two-day interdisciplinary event focused on Roma queer and feminist activism, performance and scholarship in Europe, with a transnational perspective; it reflected on strategies and alliances, including between Roma and non-Roma people, across borders and disciplines in the current climate of heightened heteropatriarchal nationalisms. The guest speakers were multidisciplinary artist Mihaela Drăgan, and scholars and activists Dr Lucie Fremlova and Dr Angela Kóczé.
