Visualizing Colonialism and Haitian Sovereignty: Documenting Haiti’s Forts

A series of workshops and training sessions on digital cartography in Florida and Haiti, with a goal of creating the first detailed map of Haitian patrimonial structures.

This is a collaborative effort between humanities scholars, libraries, and archives at Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) at Florida International University and Institut de Sauvegarde du Patrimoine National (ISPAN) in Haiti to use cartographic approaches to bring visibility to Haiti’s fortresses. For this NEH Digital Humanities Advancement Level 1 grant, we propose to hold two workshops and trainings, one in Miami, Florida and one Cap Haitian, Haiti, that will focus on developing a list of recommendations to create the first detailed map of Haitian patrimonial structures. There are currently no digital maps of cultural heritage in Haiti and most digital cartography projects have focused on disaster mapping. Our expected results will evaluate what a map application look like in Haiti’s context and defining what is useful for Caribbean scholars.
