Professor Silverman has studied and written about Roma people and the prejudices against them for nearly four decades and has won numerous fellowships and awards for her contributions to the field. Inspired by their rich culture, she quickly developed a parallel interest in their everyday lives and the prejudice and fear they face around the globe. The focus of some of her latest work and current book project is on the word “Gypsy” and its cultural appropriation in society.
