ICS Lecture: “Santo Domingo, Haiti, and the 19th Century Caribbean”


As part of Conferencias Caribeñas 12 Series, the Institute of Caribbean Studies at the University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras invites the academic community and the public at large to the lecture “Santo Domingo, Haití y el Caribe del siglo XIX” [Santo Domingo, Haiti, and the 19th Century Caribbean] by Dr. Anne E. Eller (History Department, University of Connecticut. Dr. María Filomena González Canalda (School of History and Anthropology, Autonomous University of Santo Domingo) will serve as commentator.

The lecture will take place on Thursday, February 28, 2013, at 1:00-3:30pm at the Manuel Maldonado Denis Amphitheatre in the Carmen Rivera de Alvarado Building (CRA 108), School of Social Sciences, UPR-RP.

Description: Although it is sometimes isolated in the confines of a strictly national historiography, the history of the peoples and citizens of Santo Domingo (the Dominican Republic) is larger, with strong links with its neighbors in the region. Between the period of revolution at the beginning of the century and the intensification of U.S. interests in subsequent decades, something of a radical regionalism emerged in the republic, especially around the main port town in the north, Puerto Plata. This paper will consider the anti-colonial times of the War of Restoration (1863-1865), to trace interconnecting networks spanning the island and the region.

All lectures will be broadcast LIVE online through the following website: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/cc71***
