Voices from the Community of Irish Travellers

Roberta Piazza is reader in English and Linguistics at the University of Sussex and has written about how groups such as Irish Travellers are understood within the communities in which they live. With Gypsies and Roma, Travellers in the UK have special status and local authorities have a duty of care towards them. The introduction will draw on interviews over many years in the local encampment at Horsedean in Brighton & Hove, and provide insight into how Travellers see the world, their desires and aspirations, their fears and suspicions, and their vision of family and motherhood.
