Sorcery Narratives in the History of Haiti and the Dominican Republic

A book-length study of Hispaniola focusing on the shared folklore, historical memory, and environment of the borderlands between Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

This proposal seeks twelve months of support for completion of a book manuscript on sorcery narratives as a form of historical memory in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, a project that brings the cultural meanings of animals into the social and environmental history of Latin America and the Caribbean. The final product will be a book with supplemental oral history video clips that I plan to submit to Duke University Press.
