In the second half of the 20th century, Haitian society has been profoundly impacted by massive waves of exile provoked by the collective trauma of the Duvaliers dictatorships and epitomized by the internationally recognizable image of the "boat people". On the literary scene, the resulting Haitian diaspora, in North America and elsewhere, has found ways to maintain connections with the native land, reminiscing on childhood memories, revisiting Haiti both physically and metaphorically, and engaging with their shared history, myths, and traditions.

Friday, September 30, 2022

Abstract: This roundtable will bring together scholars interested in developing and studying archives that push the boundaries of what we consider the archive. At the roundtable, through our work, we will consider questions that arise within archival practices and arts, such as: what constitutes or counts as an archive, what kinds of archival delineations should be drawn, pushed back against, or ruptured, and, perhaps most importantly, what is or should be the role of the archive in combating systemic injustice and advancing social justice?

The notion of an emergent medieval ‘gay subculture’ remains one of the most highly contested claims of John Boswell’s 1981 magnum opus Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality. In the decades since its publication, research on medieval queerness has tended to emphasise the individual over the collective whether in terms of identity, experience and as constructed discursive subjects. Despite this, landmark studies such as those by Michael Rocke, Carolyn Dinshaw and Kadin Henningsen have demonstrated some of the ways in which medieval people built networks of companionship and mutual support grounded in a shared experience of living outside of their societies’ norms of gender and sexuality.

Human(ities) Matters: Academia, Community, and Civic Life (Roundtable)

The humanities as an academic field has always been predicated on helping societies harness critical knowledge in improving our understanding of the human condition. Yet, scholars in the humanities continue to have a challenging time bridging their work with the larger preoccupations of the community, continuing to be weighed down by the twin discourses of triviality or the “Ivory Tower”. The rise of public humanities–the work of engaging communities-at-large in the intersections of history, traditions, humanistic culture, and material realities of civic life–is a testament to the value that humanities scholars can bring to the public when they are able to translate their high-level academic skills into transformative prospects outside the university.

In his 2017 inauguration speech, Donald Trump painted a picture of “American carnage” sweeping the nation. Echoing the rhetoric used throughout his campaign, he described his vision of the present state of America in apocalyptic terms: from “rusted out factories, scattered like tombstones across the landscape” to “the crime, and the gangs, and the drugs that have stolen too many lives.” For Trump and his supporters, this apocalypse was the America he was inheriting—yet for many other Americans, such tropes were instead used to characterize the nation that Trump led from 2017 to 2021. Accordingly, in his 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden evoked similar language when he framed the presidential election as a “battle for the soul of this nation.”

The “publish or perish” mantra in academia intimidates and baffles graduate students in equal measure at different stages in their careers. Too often, there is neither enough discussion nor adequate support available at the departmental level to help graduate students navigate the opaque process of revising a conference-length paper into a publishable manuscript.
