Documenting Migration Stories: The Haitian American Dream Digital Archive
March 10, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Event Moderator: Dr. Manoucheka Celeste (Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research)
Panelists: Ivanna Moreno, Alexandra Cenatus, and Dr. Margarita Vargas-Betancourt
The Haitian American Dream Timeline examines the events and the forgotten narratives of Haitian immigrants in the United States. In so doing, it explains the reasons behind the different waves of Haitian migration, its ongoing impacts, and upheavals so that, as Michel-Rolph Trouillot states, the stories of “the actors who participate in the production of history or any of the sites where that production” transpired are told.
In this event, Ivanna Moreno, Alexandra Cenatus, and Dr. Margarita Vargas-Betancourt (the project team) will discuss their roles and experiences. The panel will also delve into DH projects’ importance in highlighting marginalized voices from US history while providing undergraduate and graduate students professional experience in library, archival, and cultural heritage fields. This event is free and open to the public.
