Introducing a new H-Net commons network titled H-Haiti


H-Net proudly welcomes H-Haiti to its family of nearly 200 networks, now available on the H-Net Commons. Read on and follow the links below for more information about this exciting new network!


H-Haiti provides a new forum dedicated to what scholar and advisory board member of H-Haiti, Gina Athena Ulysse, has called “New Narratives of Haiti.” H-Haiti proposes this crossroads for scholars, artists, and activists to explore and discuss Haitian history, art, politics, and culture through a lens beyond that of fear, repression, failure, and dependency. H-Haiti features interviews, editorials, guest posts, and a variety of announcements, and H-Haiti readers and participants represent a range of disciplines and perspectives, including art history, history, literature, anthropology, political science, religion, and performance studies.

In the end, the goal of H-Haiti is to bring together scholars, artists, and other cultural leaders to share information and deepen our understanding and awareness of the historical role of Haiti and Haitians in the making of the modern world-system. The discussion network accepts submissions in English, French, and Haitian Kreyòl.
