Dahouda Presents at Georgetown University

Kanate Dahouda, assistant professor of French and Francophone studies, was recently invited at Georgetown University to participate in an Interdisciplinary Conference devoted to Haiti and the French Caribbean. His paper was titled “Haiti. Emile Ollivier: la mémoire de la migrance.” It dealt with ways in which the Caribbean writer Emile Ollivier redefines his pluralistic identity through the practice of Diaspora and the experience of memory and exile. The conference held in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, Oct. 19, was sponsored by the French Department of Georgetown University to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Independence of Haiti.
