The Haitian Atlantic

The Haitian Atlantic: A Literary Geography is a story map that traces some of the ways that Atlantic world writers attempted to engage with the history, language, and legacy of the Haitian Revolution in the long nineteenth century. The traditional map plots both the physical and imaginative journey of Haitian independence as its story fell into different hands, helping it to virtually move from writer to writer and from locale to locale. The narrative map attempts to provide historical context for each of the geographical nodes indicated on the physical map and alerts readers to some of the earlier eighteenth-century writings about slave rebellion and colonial resistance in the Americas that inform the literature of the Haitian Revolution.
