Decolonizing Haitian Studies through Digital Scholarship

Natasha Joseph (Howard University, formerly University of Florida)


What is most special about digital humanities is the ability to reach people and areas that may not have had access to certain academic works and help to broaden the scope of research as well as magnify the voices of marginalized populations.

Project Goals

In her presentation, Natasha calls for new Haitian narratives that decolonize research. She examines who Haitian women are, including what trials, tribulations, successes, failures, and obstacles hinder their progress as agents of environmental change.
