Romani Studies academics often complain they are marginalised within the academic community in the same way that Roma/Gypsy/Traveller minorities are marginalised within nation-state polities. This paper will argue that the cognitive exclusion of the history of these communities from most hegemonic national discourses is rooted in the historical circumstances of the emergence of the institution of the nation state in the 16th century, and is difficult to challenge without challenging the legitimacy of the nation state itself.
