    Suzanne Comhaire-Sylvain, comparative perspectives of a woman, writer, linguist and anthropologist

    Suzanne Comhaire-Sylvain est née à Port-au-Prince en 1898 et morte au Nigéria en 1975. Elle est une anthropologue africaniste et une linguiste qui a mené beaucoup de recherches dans le champ des études haïtiennes. Première femme linguiste et anthropologue d’Haïti, elle fait partie des pionniers des études créoles et de l’oraliture. Au cours de sa carrière universitaire, elle a publié divers articles de référence sur des aspects de la vie sociale et culturelle d’Haïti et de certains pays africains notamment le Congo et le Nigéria. Ses études des contes haïtiens cherchent non seulement à les catégoriser, retracer leurs origines mais également à dégager leur structure. Dans l’objectif de remettre dans le débat le travail de cette chercheuse majeure dans les sciences humaines et sociales en Haïti, cette manifestation scientifique montrera l’importance des travaux de Suzanne Comhaire-Sylvain pour la science, l’éducation et la culture et son héritage.
