Identifying and Removing the Silences of Roma Culture in Polish School Texts
Swietek, Agnes; Brunn, Stanley; Wógtowicz, Bozena
Journal of Geography, v118 n4 p169-184 2019
The Roma are the largest and, some scholars would argue, the most marginalized group in Europe, an observation evident in an examination of school texts for Polish children. Using the concept of the "geographies of silence," we discuss the nature of text and graphical silences and the reasons behind the paucity of text, photo, and map coverage. We conclude by presenting photos that could be used in future texts to better inform Polish youth about a much-neglected part of their culture.
