Abstract [en]

This study concerns digital stories told by five young Romani students and one teacher from Roma Culture Class in Stockholm, Sweden. The theoretical framework draws from theories concerning identity, culture,

Romanipe, the Romani value system and social semiotics. The material for the study is the digital stories that were analyzed qualitatively. The results show that the young Roma in the study demonstrate pride in their Romani background and culture, but also signs of changes and development in their culture. Some of the participants do not show external signs of Romani traditions, for example in the ways of dressing. However, they show their Romani descent through other signs and symbols as for example through images where the Romani tea table is especially emphasized. The study indicates that the use of multimodality seems to give the participants in the study more power over their own representations.
