Hands-On Global Education: Projects from the Duke Haiti Lab

April 23, 2013 @ 5:15 pm - 7:15 pm

In this workshop with Duke Haiti Lab Co-Director Deborah Jenson and members of the Haiti Lab, participants will explore various ways to incorporate Haitian history and culture into their classes using interactive online projects, including The Vodou Archive, Mental Health in Haiti, Slave Nations, History Embedded in Amber, Haiti Digital Library, & Women’s Rights in Haiti.  Educators will learn about Vodou religion & culture with documentarian scholars Eric Barstow and Claire Payton. Their multimedia website the Vodou Archive offers video, audio, photography, and written text documenting Mr. Barstow and Ms. Payton’s week-long research trip to Gonaives, Haiti, where they recorded religious rituals and interviewed a priest and other members of the religious community there. Participants will have an opportunity for collaborative brainstorming, and all will leave with resources on Haiti and hands-on activities they can utilize in and adapt for their classrooms. Registered participants will receive materials including a copy of Haiti Lab co-director Laurent Dubois’ Haiti: The Aftershocks of History.
