Abstract

The thesis explores the online practices and the transnational mobilities of a community of Pentecostal Gypsies. The community has diffused from their central hub a Romanian village and is now scattered across Europe. The thesis asks: how does a mobile ethnic group remain united as it transforms from a geographically intensive community to a spatially extensive one? The research design combines analysis of geo-referenced YouTube videos, offline machine code metadata and real world ethnographic data in order to contribute to conceptual debates within migration studies about deterritorialization and the maintenance of social ties after geographical dispersion.
