Awakening the Ashes: An Intellectual History of Haiti

Research and writing leading to an intellectual history of Haiti from 1804 to the 1950s.

In recent years, scholars of historiography have argued the need for a more comparative and capacious understanding of global intellectual history that moves beyond Europe. Awakening the Ashes, which will be the first comprehensive intellectual history of Haiti published in the English language, contributes to this move by placing Haitian writers and politicians within the global history of ideas. Beginning with Haitian independence in 1804 and ending around the time of the second World War, this book is designed to provide an in-depth study of key figures of 19th- and early 20th-century Haitian intellectual history and a broad analysis of what Haitian political, literary, and historical ideas writ large might reveal.
