In the spirit of Papa Legba (a Haitian lwa who acts as a crossroads between the human and non-human worlds), "Enduring Questions, New Methods" is dedicated to facilitating conversation as a crossroads – a dynamic space within which to explore Haitian history, art, politics, and culture in ways that contest narratives of fear, repression, failure, and dependency. This conference convenes national and international cultural actors from a variety of different disciplines in an effort to deepen our collective understanding of the prominent role Haiti and Haitians have had in making and critiquing the modern world-system.
