19th Century French Texts Francophonie Visuals Hatian and Other Black Writers


The purpose of this website is to assemble resources related to slavery in the Francophone world from the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Special attention is given to women writers whose antislavery writings in France are often overlooked and undervalued. It provides primary and secondary materials and a list of annotated related sites. In addition, it contains texts and pictures of Maryse Condé's In the Time of the Revolution, performed at the University of Georgia in 1997. Doris Kadish is Distinguished Research Professor Emerita at the University of Georgia. Since her retirement in 2011, she has done little to update this site. She would like to hear from younger scholars who could help with this project: (dkadish@uga.edu)
