Frédéric Gérald Chéry

Université d'État d'Haïti - professor

Professeur à l'université, je travaille sur les questions monétaires, l'économie du savoir, les prévisions macroéconomiques, les politiques de population, les finances publiques et les sociétés post-esclavagistes. Ma thèse de doctorat s'intitule : Ajustement économique, monnaie et institutions dans l'économie haïtienne (2001). J'ai publié plusieurs ouvrages sur l'économie haïtienne dont : Société, économie et politique en Haïti : La crise permanente (2005), L'économie et ses fondements cognitifs en Haïti (2008), Le financement de la décentralisation et du développement local (2009), L'action l'État et l'économie en Haïti (2010), La structuration de l'économie et la réforme de l'État en Haïti (2012). Ces travaux montrent qu'Haïti peut passer d'une économie reposant sur la rente agricole à une nouvelle économie fondée sur la connaissance et offrant des opportunités à tous ses individus.

Magalie Civil

As a committed researcher, I opt for an epistemological posture that is part of a logic of production of transformative knowledge. I make Haiti my main field of research and activism as well. I started my master's degree in 2019, and I took the risk of carrying out my thesis project on peyilòk, an emerging phenomenon on which there was no scientific literature when I started. With this research I obtained the Emerging Researcher Award from Haitian Association Studies (HSA) this year.My doctoral research is a continuation of this research. I will discuss the tactical and strategic performance of protest actors on the one hand, political and state actors on the other, the interaction between protest movements and the state, and the impact of the mobilizations of the Haitian diaspora in the current crisis in Haiti.My goal is to continue to do research in Haiti and contribute to making intelligible the various obstacles that defeat every transformative project in Haiti.

Robyn Cope

Binghamton University - Assistant Professor of French

Website

Robyn Cope is Assistant Professor of French at Binghamton University. Her primary research interests include Caribbean women's writing and literary food studies. Cope has published and presented a number of times on Haitian-American author Edwidge Danticat's fiction. Her current monograph project, tentatively titled The Pen and the Pan: Food, Fiction, and Homegrown Caribbean Feminism(s), is a comparative study of culinary fiction by Caribbean women writers from the Francophone and Anglophone Caribbean. Braiding literature, history, and gender studies, The Pen and the Pan argues that over the past quarter century, Caribbean women writers, including Danticat, have used food and fiction to make visible the invisible histories of Caribbean women's everyday experiences with oppression and resistance and to advocate for coalitional Caribbean feminism(s).
