Gender, Violence, and Politics in Haiti : Roundtable Discussion

Thursday 17 February 2022 - 04:30pm - 06:00pm

The Rutgers Advanced Institute for Critical Caribbean Studies invites you to join this upcoming panel on Gender, Violence and Politics in Haiti, which is the inaugural event of its new Haiti Series, coordinated by Prof. Shanna Jean-Baptiste. The panel will count with the participation of Haitian organizers, activists, and scholars Danièle Magloire, Fania Noël, Pascale Solages, and Dominique St Vil. The discussion will be centered around gender-based violence in Haiti, including violence against the LGBTQ community, and the erasure of gender-based violence in narratives of contemporary Haiti. In addition, the link between state and gender-based violence in the country’s recent sociopolitical crises will be highlighted, as well as the key role Haitian organizers based in Haiti play in the fight against corruption and in ushering new forms of social justice in the nation. The discussion will be in English and French.
