Re: Vodou in Translation: A Roundtable on the English-Language Translation of Vodou (with Patrick Bellegarde-Smith, Kaiama Glover, Carolyn Shread, and Kate Ramsey)

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.

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.
