Romani genetic linguistics and genetics: Results, prospects and problems

Much progress has been made recently in the migration history of the Roms based on language data. Genetic research on the Roms, using DNA data, sheds light on the same, by studying connections between European Roms and local populations, between Roms in different locations, and between Roms and Asian groups. The genetic data confirm a migration of the ancestors of the Roms out of South Asia, through southern Persia. In most locations of settled populations in Europe, the Roms appear rather different from the local non-Roms and from other Romani groups. The groupings used by geneticists often differ from those used by linguists, and the density of data, too, differs between the two disciplines. This leads to problems of different kinds in comparing the genetic and linguistic results on migration patterns. Generally, the data point to the same historical scenario, including the dating of linguistic and genetic splits

ANTH 3000: Current Issues in Cultural Anthropology

This international field school in Europe puts academic study in context through visits to selected Romani communities in eastern Slovakia. Students will have the opportunity to spend several days in a Romani settlement and experience the daily life of its residents; to meet representatives of the Romani political establishment; and to appreciate the creative and artistic dimension of settlement culture.
