Abstract: The paper presents results of an experimental investigation into the nature of “Roma” categorization. Using biological and social varieties of visual cues of persons as independent variables the perception of the persons in terms of “Roma essence” was measured. The aim of the experiment was to ascertain whether essentialism or constructionism determine the formation of the “Roma” judgment..
Keywords: Categorization; Experiment; Perception; Roma.
