This special issue aims at bringing to light scientific knowledge which counterbalances thestereotyping of Haitian and Caribbean women’s rights. For centuries, Haitian women have beendeeply marked by the geostrategic interests of various world powers, and they are still the object of narratives whose androcentrism is explicit. This sp ecial issue will provide an opportunity to debate Haitian women’s varied experiencesthrough new epistemic and political postures, questioning western perceptions of Haiti. Thus, it will contribute to developing research largely based on practices, experiences, ideas, and theories produced in the Caribbean with an awareness for the logics of coloniality. The aim will be to bring to light an emerging literature in Haiti and, more broadly, in the French-speaking Caribbean. It will also place recent changes in the context of structural historicity, what tookplace since 2010 also being explained by structural mutations which began prior to the earthquake.



The Revue internationale des études du développement launches a Call for Contributions for its Special issue "Haiti: An Earthquake for Gender", to be published in summer 2019. Attached to this message and here is the Call for Contributions in French, English and Spanish, with all the information related to the proposal submissions.

This issue will favor an interdisciplinary, multi-angled approach. Authors from all social and human sciences may submit papers, including but not limited to : sociology, demography, history, geography, political science, economics, anthropology, etc.

Authors should explore these themes based on an understanding of international, national, and local trajectories. The contextualization of empirical studies and original corpuses and the combination of a sound theoretical approach and fieldwork are expected.
