Abstract

International comparative studies are a crucial element of the ongoing theorisation of nomadic and Traveller education. This preliminary comparison between Venezuelan and Australian fairground people focusses on similarities and differences in their patterns of residence, occupational groups, organisational frameworks and relations with the broader community. The paper argues provisionally that itinerancy rather than business type appears to influence the marginalisation with which nomadic and Traveller education must engage, and suggests possible directions for future, more extensive research.
