Call for paper


The editorial board of the Haitian History Journal is currently soliciting articles, reviews of recently published books and films, as well as reports of ongoing research projects and other related activities, for the 2019/2020 issue of the journal. It will center on the centenary of the U.S. Marine Occupation of 1915 and its consequences in Haiti and the circum-Caribbean, as well as commemorative events of this critical period of Haiti’s history. The broader temporal period for the issue, however, may range anywhere from U.S. recognition of Haiti’s independence in 1862 and the later 19th- century decades up to the end of the Occupation itself in the 20th century. Publication of the second issue of the journal will also be accompanied with organized public events, round table discussions and debates, photo exhibits, films, etc., in collaboration with various community organizations and universities.
Abstracts of proposed articles and book or film reviews should be submitted no later than September 30th, 2019, after which a decision will be made and notification sent out to accept or not the proposal. Articles and reviews will be accepted in French, English and Spanish. Articles or reviews already published in any of the three languages may also be submitted (with appropriate permissions) for translation as a new publication. Submitted articles should be sent electronically in Word format to the editorial board and must be received no later than January 15th, 2020. The editors will review the submissions and send them anonymously to members of the academic community with expertise in the field for peer review.
