Thank you all for this rich dialogue: translation is indeed key, a part of the broader arsenal of changing narratives, rendering various pasts legible and futures possible. This dialogue is a great resource for helping us think through our practice as scholars of Haiti.
Interdisciplinary Studies in Diasporas book series
We are accepting original monographs and edited collections for the Interdisciplinary Studies in Diasporas book series. The series was launched in 2016, and it opens a discursive space in diaspora scholarship across a range of topics from the humanities to social sciences. All submissions are subject to peer-review and assessment for consideration https://www.peterlang.com/view/serial/ISD
Siobhan and I would like to acknowledge two errors made while editing this post. Footnote 3 should read Nadève "Ménard." Second, the follow-up question we pose to the participants should refer to 2011 instead of 2012 for the year that the LoC changed their subject heading from "voodooism" to "Vodou."
We apologize for these errors and they are our own as the editors of the series.
