Haitian Studies Association

Haitian Studies Association’s Annual Conference


34th Annual Conference:

Mawonaj / Marronage / Maroonage: 

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

October Friday 7 – Sunday 9, 2022

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 7 – 9, 2022 at Howard University to consider various manifestations and sites of mawonaj/ marronage in Haiti, in Haitian Studies, and throughout the African diaspora. Even before independence, the rich and complex history of mawonaj/ marronage in Haiti was a prime example of collective efforts to challenge displacement, assimilation, and cultural erasure. The multiple geographies of resistance where oppressed groups struggle against domination, assert their agency, and claim space are evidence of the continuing significance and complexity of this phenomenon.
