HISTORIOGRAPHY AND EPISTEMOLOGY
This presentation seeks to open up an epistemological debate about
the sources that feed our knowledge and understanding of Haiti and the
Dominican Republic and the manner in which their histories have been
written, within the context of the history of the Greater Caribbean and Latin
America. It will be guided by three fundamentally interrelated questions:
(i) How does the contemporary Dominican Republic embrace or
reject the African component of its history?
(ii) How has the world embraced or rejected Haiti since what
had started as another slave rebellion mushroomed into the
successful creation of a sovereign nation-state?
(iii) How does the current Dominican ambivalence toward Africa
reKect the broader attitudes that have prevailed between the
19th century and the contemporary period about Haiti and
Haitians?
