Christina mobley

Christina F. Mobley specializes in the history of slavery in west central Africa and the Caribbean with a particular focus on the Kongo zone and Haiti. Her book manuscript, "Vodou History: the Kongo History of the Haitian Revolution," uses a sociolinguistic methodology to investigate the trans-Atlantic history of the Kongo men, women, and children who endured slavery in Saint Domingue, helped win the most successful slave revolution in history – the Haitian Revolution (1791-1804) – and founded the first black republic, Haiti. To get beyond the silences in the written archive, Dr. Mobley draws on non-traditional sources such as Vodou songs and language itself to recover the history of Africans in the Atlantic world. Dr. Mobley is a passionate advocate of collaborative research across disciplines and institutions, especially as it relates to Africa and the African diaspora. She was the founding co-director of the Global South Humanities Laboratory at U.Va., where she directed collaborate digital projects with undergraduate and graduate students. She is the creator of the Atlantic Worlds website and contributor to the Digital Library of the Caribbean’s Haiti: An Island Luminous project, Duke University’s  and Edouard Duval-Carrié’s collaborative art project Haiti: History Embedded in Amber@christinamobley
