Haitian Studies Association

at the University of Massachusetts Boston

The Haitian Studies Association provides a forum for the exchange and dissemination of ideas and knowledge in order to inform pedagogy, practice, and policy about Haiti in a global context. 

To this end, we work to

  • infuse scholarship with new ideas, and to make it relevant to Haitian reality
  • advance to its rightful place the historical and potential contributions of Haiti to a pluralistic world
  • celebrate the achievements of Haitians while affirming the inherent dignity of their history
  • bridge the gap between the Haitian Diaspora, Haiti, and Caribbean
  • recognize the diversity that exists among Haitians
