Haitian Studies as a Space of Refuge, Resistance, and Freedom

Howard University – Washington, D.C.

After two years of planning, we are excited to announce that our 34th Annual Haitian Studies Association Conference will be held in-person in Washington, D.C. We invite you to join us from October 6 – 8, 2022 at Howard University to consider various manifestations and sites of mawonaj / marronage in Haiti, in Haitian Studies, and throughout the African diaspora. 

We will explore mawonaj/ marronage as praxis, as consciousness, as a way of life, and as a site of reclamation and reconstruction.

Please save the date! The full Call for Papers will be available soon. More details forthcoming …
