Neil Roberts: Perspectives on Haiti

Feb. 4: Neil Roberts, assistant professor of Africana Studies and faculty affiliate in political science, delivered a pubic lecture at Dartmouth College on January 28, 2010.  His talk was part of an inaugural series entitled “Perspectives on Haiti: An Interdisciplinary Discussion of the Haitian Revolution.”  The aim of the series is to bring together a collection of scholars that can contextualize both to a campus community and wider global audience key historical, economic, and political factors in Haiti past and present, thereby providing a deeper understanding of the current situation facing the Haitian republic following the recent major earthquake and conscious forward-looking strategies being enacted by those living internal and external to the polity.
