            CALL FOR PAPERS
Thirteenth Annual Conference

October 11-13, 2001

St. Michaels College, Winooski Park

Colchester (Burlington), Vermont

Institution Building: The Road to Social, Political and Economic
Development of Haiti

Established institutions are fundamental to the life and welfare of a
nation. Recognizing that fact, the purpose of the 13th annual conference
of the Haitian Studies Association is to foster dialogue among policy
makers, scholars, and practitioners about developing dynamics and
functioning institutions that can tackle the social, political and
economic challenges that Haitians face inside and outside of Haiti.

The conference calls for Haitianists, other scholars, and practitioners to
explore the role of institutions in the economic, political, and social
development process of Haiti from an inter-disciplinary perspective.
Papers may focus on the historical, cultural, economic, political, social
and educational aspects of institution building and their relationship to
development. We welcome paper and panel proposals that look at ideological
and practical impediments to developing and sustaining functioning and
dynamic state and non-governmental institutions. Individual papers should
clearly identify specific issues as well as elements of a winning strategy
for change.  

 This year the Congress of Santa Barbara (KOSANBA) will hold its 4th
Annual Colloquium jointly with HSA. The Theme of the Colloquium is:
Worldview and Religious Paradigms In Nation-Building: The Role of
Institutions. For more information, please contact Kosanba at

 Proposal must be postmarked by April 30, 2001. Please mail, fax or e-mail
