The Archive of Haitian Religion and Culture: Collaborative Research and Scholarship on Haiti and the Haitian Diaspora will create a freely accessible multimedia digital library that uses audiovisual technologies to curate, elucidate and facilitate the advanced search of the rich primary materials of a central Haitian and Haitian-American spiritual tradition in order to promote discovery and educate a broad public. This collection provides content online for scholars and the public in the form of:
  • Audiovisual content available as sound, photographic or video footage that will be transcribed, translated, subtitled and explicated
  • Textual content available as facsimile, updated modernizations and translations
  • Critical syntheses such as commentary, exegesis, etymology, etc., available in English
  • New works obtained through the Digital Library of the Caribbean’s self-submission tool

University of Florida and Duke University researchers and librarians, led by project director Benjamin Hebblethwaite (UF) and co-director Laurent Dubois (Duke), with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), will support increased understanding of a central Haitian and Haitian-American spiritual tradition, the Vodou religion, by gathering the audiovisual and textual sources of communities, by interpreting the collected materials, by expanding the holdings through a self-submission tool, and by diffusing the knowledge via an open access digital library hosted within the existing Digital Library of the Caribbean.
