Haiti Today: People, Culture, & Politics 2008

“This summer the Africana Studies Department at the University of Massachusetts Boston will offer a unique academic program on location in Haiti. This program explores the history, politics, culture, and the economic and social developments taking place in Haiti, from both external and internal perspectives. It will facilitate students’ understanding of Haiti through total immersion into culture, environment, language, and the country’s economic, political and social realities. Students will visit significant historical, cultural, and ecological sites in various towns including day trips to St. Marc, Gonaives and Kenscoff. Other planned field trips include a two-day excursion to the beautiful artistic town of Jacmel in southeast Haiti, and a special two-day historic and cultural field trip to Cap Haitien to visit the citadel and King Henri Christophe’s Sans-Souci palace ruins in the town of Milot.”
