Huub van Baar

Huub van Baar (MSc Mathematics, MA Philosophy, PhD Humanities) is Assistant Professor of Political Theory at the Justus-Liebig University of Giessen, Germany. He is also Senior Research Fellow of the Amsterdam Centre for Globalisation Studies (ACGS) at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and an affiliated researcher of the Amsterdam Centre for Contemporary European Studies (ACCESS EUROPE).

He co-ordinates an interdisciplinary research project (2014-17) on Roma minority formation in modern European history which is part of the research program Dynamics of Security: Forms of Securitization in Historical Perspective, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). He has widely published on the position and political, cultural, historical and scholarly representation of Europe’s Romani minorities, predominantly from the angle of how their current situation has changed at the nexus of citizenship, security and development.

He is the author of The European Roma: Minority Representation, Memory and the Limits of Transnational Governmentality (F&N, Amsterdam, 2011; winner of the ASCA Dissertation Award 2012). In this book, van Baar brings postcolonial, development, governmentality and Romani studies together to analyze changing Romani minority and identity formations in a globalizing Europe and to call for a revision of historiographical methods in Roma-related scholarship. Van Baar is also the editor of Museutopia: A Photographic Research Project by Ilya Rabinovich (Alauda Publications, Amsterdam, 2012). His articles have appeared in various journals, such as Third Text, the International Journal of Urban and Regional Research, City, the International Journal of Cultural Policy, Citizenship Studies, Environment and Planning D: Society and Space, Etnofoor, Antipode and the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies. He is currently involved in two book projects, one on the Europeanization of Roma representation (2016) and another one on Mobility, Security and Border Regimes in Europe (2017).
