Emerging Scholars Committee Message to Conference Attendees




The Emerging Scholars committee is dedicated to the development and support of new generations of scholars of Haiti and the Haitian diaspora. We coordinate mentorship events and advocate for the particular concerns of students and emerging scholars with the association.

Emerging as a scholar is an ongoing process and we welcome participation from all self-identifying emerging scholars. Those programs which are restricted to current students (undergraduate and graduate) are labeled as such.

Call for Graduate Student Volunteers

The Haitian Studies Association seeks 6 volunteers (compensated with reduced registration)  to assist with running our 35th Annual Conference, “Ayiti Se Tè Glise: Im/Migration, Movement & In-Betweenness” in Atlanta, Georgia, October 5-8th, 2023 at the historical campus of Morehouse College.
