Event Details

1804 & Its Afterlives asserts that Haiti presents a distinct challenge to established methods of writing and conceptualising history itself.

The conference proposes that the complex ‘afterlives’ of its Revolution, both within Haiti and the larger Atlantic World, can best be understood through a cross-disciplinary approach that includes, for example, history, political philosophy, postcolonial cultural studies, ethnomusicology, critical anthropology and literary criticism. The conference speakers bring a spectrum of disciplinary resources to bear on heterogeneous, far-reaching histories that have too often been distorted or silenced by forces more powerful than their own.

Speakers include:

Colin (aka Joan) Dayan (Vanderbilt University), Michael Largey (Michigan State University), Barbara Browning (NYU), Ada Ferrer (NYU), Millery Polyné (NYU), Matthew J. Smith (UWI Mona), Martin Munro (Florida State University), Nick Nesbitt (Princeton University), Dick Geary (Uniersity of Nottingham)

Nottingham Contemporary’s public programme is jointly funded by Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.
