Tuesday, November 13

As part of the program of events related to Nottingham Contemporary’s current exhibition, Kafou; Haiti, Art and Vodouleading post-colonial theorist David Scott will present a talk entitled The Theory of Haiti.

In his talk, Scott will explore the political implications of how Haiti’s past is conceived in relation to the present and future through a reconsideration of C. L. R. James’s masterpiece of anti-colonial history, The Black Jacobins: Toussaint L’Ouverture and the San Domingo Revolution. A post-lecture discussion, which will open up to responses from the audience, will be led by Christian Høgsbjerg.

The talk will be broadcast via Nottingham Contemporary’s Website.
