Cannibals of the Terrible Republic: The Haitian Revolution Past and Present
FREN 250
Fall 2015 not offered

In addition to being the first and only successful slave revolution in the history of the human race, the Haitian Revolution created the first black republic, the first modern nation to abolish slavery definitively, and the first modern, decolonized space. In this course, we will study the colorful, complex, and eventful history of that revolution and, just as important, representations both of the conflict and its aftermath that firmly ensconce Haiti and the foundation of contemporary postcolonialism.
