Event description

Description

Free. Cafe.Bar.

Join us for the book launch of Undead Uprising: Haiti, Horror and the Zombie Complex and conversation with John Cussans and Wendy Asquith. The book traces the history of racist and xenophobic representations of Haiti through the chimerical optics of voodoo-terror. It asks how such depictions have contributed to the historical occlusion of Haiti as the first Black, post-colonial and slave-free republic of modern times, and their continued role in perpetuating the image of Haiti as a land mired in primitive superstition and incapable of socio-economic progress.
