Call for papers : to commemorate January 12, 2020

TROIS/CENT/SOIXANTE is seeking contributions for a Special Issue to be published in January 2020. The goal is to explore the post-earthquake moment, ten years after the catastrophe. We want to think about how the disaster reshaped Haitian society, but also how people responded to it. We are looking for textual and/or visual contributions that track the social, economic, aesthetic, political, and intellectual dynamics that were developed or transformed these past ten years. In the meantime, these contributions could also remind us about the foundations on which these changes took place.

How the Haitian society evolved in terms of equality/inequality? How housing, education, architecture, economy, laws, childhood, authority and hierarchy, integrity and corruption, aid mechanisms, the relation to the divine, the spiritual and to religion, and the capacity to protest and react to change, have been transformed or questioned by the catastrophe and its management?

We seek academic or journalistic contributions, which can be theoretical texts, fieldwork notes, essays, reports, case studies, interviews, testimonies. We are also looking for literary and poetic productions ; literary critique ; original contributions linked to theater, music, photography, visual or digital arts.


Tonalities and forms are plural in Trois/Cent/Soixante. Texts are mainly published in French or Haitian Kreyòl. They will be chosen upon resonance with the theme, quality of content and form, originality and depth of analysis. We will particularly pay attention to the writing quality. Unique approaches and stylitic strength are key. Our editorial philosophy can be found in previous issues of the journal:
