“The Chronicle of the Death of a Portuguese Cigano from the point of view of Intermediality”
This essay explores the concepts of intermediality as exemplified in a crime story on the death of a Portuguese Cigano (Romani), published in newspaper articles during November through December, in 1938. These news articles are comprised of media such as photographs, references to paintings, oral testimony, and text. The essay addresses different levels of analysis of the media within these articles, and discusses the in-betweenness of these news articles presents a space to redefine and/or (de)stabilize a construct of Roma cultural and social identity, communicated through mass media in the Iberian Peninsula.
