Nadine Blumer (Ph.D. Sociology, University of Toronto) is affiliate faculty at Concordia University’s Centre for Ethnographic Research and Exhibition in the Aftermath of Violence (CEREV).

An article on this subject is published in the Review of Education, Pedagogy and Cultural Studies. She has also researched and published on commemoration of the Roma Holocaust, including an article in a special issue on counter-monuments in Espace arts magazine and a chapter in the edited volume The Nazi Genocide of the Roma: Reassessment and Commemoration (Berghahn Books, 2013).
