#HaitiDOI Volume, UVA 2016

I initially created this website as a supplement to The Haitian Declaration of Independence in an Atlantic Context, a conference hosted and funded by the Robert H. Smith International Center for Jefferson Studies in 2013. You can find a summary of the conference at the Legal History Blog and you can also see a Tweet-summary of the conference at David Armitage’s storified recap of the live tweeting from the conference (#HaitiDOI). Our edited volume entitled The Haitian Declaration of Independence: Creation, Context, and Legacy, (University of Virginia Press) is now available!
