Call For Papers – Rasanblaj Fanm: Stories of Haitian Womanhood, Past, Present and Future (Jan. 13, 2024)

Haitian women are regarded as the poto mitan (central pillar) of Haitian society. As caregivers, warriors, healers, artisans, traders, cultivators, manbos, storytellers, companions and agitators, they have been vital agents in shaping the fortunes of Haiti’s revolutionary anticolonial encounters and its quest for sovereignty and legitimation as an independent state. However, this term of veneration conceals diverse forms of political, social and discursive exclusion that women in Haiti and across the dyaspora confront in the present, and the myriad forms of silence and neglect to which they have been subjected in the historical record.

CALLS FOR PAPERS: “The ‘Weaponization’ of Ethnic Studies” (Dec. 15, 2023)

Kalfou is seeking submissions that address what Sunaina Maira describes as the “weaponization” of Ethnic Studies against itself. Despite the proliferation of “DEI” statements and agencies, we continue to see the neutralization of antiracist and antisexist discourses in order to perpetuate injustice. In various ways, such neutralization attempts to delegitimate radical struggles and the knowledge they produce.

Re-situer et restituer Haïti : Nouvelles connexions (9 oct 2023)

Appel à Communication
« Dire Haïti et sa littérature autrement, c’est se demander, à travers les mots de ses écrivains et de ses écrivaines, quel éclairage peut apporter aujourd’hui au monde francophone, sinon au monde tout court, l’expérience haïtienne », déclare l’écrivaine haïtienne Yanick Lahens dans sa leçon inaugurale de la chaire annuelle des Mondes Francophones (2018-2019) au Collège de France. Ce colloque s’inscrit, à l’instar du propos de Lahens, dans une urgence de dire Haïti autrement. Urgence de « dire » et « autrement » pour tenter de sortir le pays de l’économie à la fois du silence et de la diffamation qui entoure le discours sur lui depuis le succès de la révolution haïtienne qui abolit l’esclavage et mit fin au colonialisme français sur l’île caribéenne.

Journal of Haitian Studies Special Issue – Call for Papers (Apr. 15, 2023)

This special issue emerges from the Sexualities Working Group of the Haitian Studies Association, a group of Haitian and U.S. American scholars and practitioners who have, since 2015 in different configurations, mobilized in coalition toward the rights to live creatively for Haitian LGBTQ/M-community, Vodouyizan, and all those who do not conform to sexual/gendered norms. Responding to a call made by our Haitian activist interlocutors to support their on-the-ground endeavors through increased dissemination of research on the construction and performance of genders and sexualities in Haiti, the editorial collective hopes this special issue will document, share, and collectivize mutual commitments to bolstering the work of queer crusaders and all those who dare to live creatively in Haiti and its diasporas.
