Pluralidade e reconfiguração da identidade cigana em Portugal
AbstractPlurality and reconfiguration gypsy identity in Portugal In modern societies, the question of identity is central when considering the need of spreading a cultural identity, which is fairly accepted by all. Gypsies, who are culturally distinguished by the dominant culture, have survived by accepting their past and certain symbols passed from generation to generation while adopting aspects of modern society. This article expresses the view that cultural contact results in miscegenation, a mestization which is reflected in social identity, and which contributes to the existence of a new kind of identity plurals or a new social type that strays from the traditional while not being completely identified by the dominant models. Keywords: Identity; Gypsies; Mestization; Integration.
