MeenuNext year, I will be moving to Spain on a Fulbright scholarship to research the extent of social, political, and economic integration of the Roma in urban contexts with relation to the governmental mechanisms and media representations that shape this process. I will be based in four cities throughout my Fulbright year – Sevilla, Granada, Madrid, and Barcelona – and I plan on incorporating interviews, surveys, and analysis of both mass media and legislation into my research. Following my Fulbright year, I will move back to the States to attend Yale Law School.
