Julia Gaffield: à la recherche de l'histoire d'Haiti
Le Nouvelliste s'est entretenu avec Juli Gaffield autour de l'intérêt des chercheurs des Etats-Unis d'Amérique pour l'histoire d'Haïti. L'entretien avec l'historienne ci-après.
Many thanks Alyssa, Marlene, and Matt!
These suggestions are great and will prove very fruitful as I launch back into the subject. In return, once I've collected all the readings I can find, I'll be sure to post my bibliography on here.
Very best to you all,
You may also want to look at the bibliography of section II (19th C.) of my book Haitian History: New Perspectives. I also heartily recommend Michel Hector and Laennec Hurbon's Genese de l'Etat Haitien, which gives a synthesis of works on the 19th C. by historians in Haiti.
In terms of works that specifically address Anglo-Haitian relations, you should check out Matthew Smith's Liberty, Fraternity, Exile--which analyzes 19th century Haitian-Jamaican relations, at times within the British imperial context.
Julia Gaffield's Haitian Connections in the Atlantic World also devotes a chapter or so to British-Haitian trade negotiations in the early decades of the 19th century.

I would like to direct your attention to the following webinar via the Digital Library of the Caribbean, which set to take place next Tuesday 4/11 at 11am EST. This session focuses on the digital history project A Colony in Crisis (https://colonyincrisis.lib.umd.edu), which features English language translations of 18th century colonial pamphlets from Saint-Domingue covering topics from economics, to slavery, to legal history.
We hope that you will join us.

The NCHR collection guide is now published and the collection is open for research.
Am sharing this review with H-Haiti subscribers. One chapter of the book deals with the memory of Haiti specifically, and other chapters may be of interest comparatively.
I am forwarding this prize information from Prof. Gusti-Klara Gaillard-Pourchet of the Société Haïtienne d’Histoire, de Géographie et de Géologie.
