Dr. Sepinwall, Professor of History California State University—San Marcos, specializes in the history of race and gender and has been the author of numerous acclaimed studies on Haiti/St. Domingue during the time of the French and American revolutions.
In her talk, Haitian History: Coming Out of the Shadows, Dr. Sepinwall will address questions such as: Why was the Haitian Revolution forgotten for so long by Americans? Why has scholarship on the Revolution increased so dramatically since the 1990s? She will examine changing views in recent decades of Haiti’s revolutionary history, focusing particularly on analyses of American-Haitian interactions since the eighteenth century and reasons why some histories and stories have been ignored in academia.
