ABS338 - 9 years being paya, 9 years gypsying me. A study of the life cycle in a roma community

2.1 Learning and development in onsite communities and online spaces
11:00 AM, Friday 1 Sep 2017 (20 minutes)
Nine years ago I was introduced in the Roma community of La Lluna and I found I was paya and I started gypsying me. The development is a cultural process. Thus, to approach to the development of the Roma community of La Lluna and their cultural practices is necessary to know their life cycle, how ecological transitions occur in this life cycle and what roles are associated with the different stages. To perform this qualitative research, we followed a sequential cohort design: the longitudinal component allows us to explore the ecological transitions that pass the members of the community as they grow; and the transverse component, in the form of different generations, allows us to examine how these different cohorts adapt themselves in the various transitions. Finally, the analysis consists of two axes: the analysis of the life cycle of the Roma community of La Lluna; and the analysis of how to build oneself as Roma, within a community interacting with the dominant cultural group and constantly changing. Both axes of analysis provide insight into how members of the Roma community of La Lluna develop and build their personal identity, considering the alternatives available in the community.
