Haiti Stories / Istwa Ayiti

In a series of discussions moderated by author and journalist Amy Wilentz, scholars across several disciplines examine how Haiti is narrated and presented in the world, and how storytelling, in the broadest as well as narrowest senses, affects the country in general and in the aftermath of the earthquake. Speakers include filmmaker Jonathan Demme, The New York Times reporter Deborah Sontag, novelist and writer Madison Smartt Bell, UCLA professor Donald Cosentino, anthropologist Paul Farmer and others.
A reception closes the program.
