Haitian Studies Association Conference at Notre Dame
This grant is funding to host the twenty-sixth annual conference of the Haitian Studies Association at University of Notre Dame on November 6-8, 2014. Approximately 400 participants are expected. The theme of the meeting is “Migration, Crossing Boundaries, Paths Forward.” The conference will be an excellent opportunity to bring scholars and students of Haiti together at the University, and further promote scholarship on Haiti. In addition, the meeting will generate greater awareness of Notre Dame’s current research, scholarship and initiatives in Haiti, inspiring new collaborative partnerships for understanding and addressing critical issues related to Haiti and Haitians abroad. Finally, the conference will be a means of promoting the Kellogg Institute’s research agendas of expanding scholarship on democracy and human development in Haiti, the Caribbean and the Americas.
