Hello, Friends of Haiti and Readers of "Haiti: Then and Now (HTN)"

Haiti: Then and Now is pleased to announce a new interview series called "Haitian Thinkers in the Public Space."

Equally, we are interested to know about their profession, scholarship, their perspective on Haiti, Haitian culture, Haitian politics, the current state of Haitian Studies, and life in the Haitian Diapora, etc. 

The interview will consist of six questions and no more than eight questions.
