Now @ @chelseastieber presenting the afternoon session here at #MLA19 #AHA19 #Haiti #HHaiti w/ @wwJJDdo, Michael Reyes & Shanna Jean-Baptiste
@wwJJDdo starts w/ "Reading the Black Spartacus: Literature as Politics in the Haitian Revolution" takes us back to the mid-18th Century & Spartacus, tragédie by M. Saurin staged regularly in the 1790s #Haiti #HHaiti #AHA19 #MLA19
Voltaire's assessment of Spartacus's war, as an enslaved Roman, was seen as "la guerre la plus juste" –– lending the Spartacus in Abbé Raynal's Histoire des deux Indes a character apt for the West Indian anti-slavery cause #Haiti #HHaiti #MLA19 #AHA19

Now at #AHA19 #s115 #HHaiti on "Saint-Domingue and Disciplinary (Dis)Loyalties: Literature and History" with @Soccerpolitics, @JohnGarrigus, Julia Prest, Yvonne Fabella, and Logan Connors. Here's the theater database @soccerpolitics just mentioned:

#AHA19 #s115 #HHaiti

@Soccerpolitics starts with a broad question, "What is it that we know about Saint-Domingue? What do we still need to know?"

@JohnGarrigus comments on how much MORE there is at the AHA on Saint-Domingue / Haitian Revolution than in the 1980s.
#AHA19 #s115 #HHaiti

@JohnGarrigus - more people are recognizing the importance of Saint-Domingue, the plantation machine. (PS, Garrigus and Trevor Burnard co-wrote a book by that name comparing Saint-Domingue and Jamaica.)
