The Gypsy Lore Society

The  Gypsy Lore Society, an international  association of persons interested in Gypsy and Traveler Studies, was founded in Great Britain in 1888.  Since 1989 it has been headquartered in the United States. Its goals include promotion of the study of Gypsy,  Traveler, and analogous peripatetic cultures worldwide; dissemination of accurate information aimed at increasing  understanding of these cultures in their diverse forms; and establishment of closer contacts among scholars studying any  aspects of these cultures.

These  Gypsy and Traveler cultures include those traditionally known, or referring to themselves as Rom, Romanichels, Cale, Sinti, Ludar, Romungre, Irish Travelers, Scottish Travelers and many others. The Society sponsors programs and conferences  and publishes the twice-yearly Romani Studies (continuing Journal of the Gypsy  Lore Society), a quarterly Newsletter and other occasional publications. The Society has  also established the Victor Weybright Archives of Gypsy Studies, specializing  in recent scholarly work on Gypsy, Traveler and related studies, for the benefit of researchers and students.
