UCSB's Haitian Studies Initiative offers critical analyses about Haiti and its rapport with the international community to support policy, community development, and social justice in Haiti and in the diaspora while also developing epistemological models that augment scholarship and sustain these interventions. The current work builds on 20 years of research on Haiti.
Through the Engaged Scholarship initiative, we have worked to develop scholarly epistemologies and methodologies based on a collaborative process of knowledge production among scholars and community members, activists and artists. This work seeks to examine not only Black inequality, but also the ways in which Black communities are creatively resisting social problems. Fueled by necessity, people at the grassroots level are inventing new forms of organization, new relationships, and new ways of thinking, working, and living. This section of the website shows the various projects of the Engaged Scholarship initiative.
