Legacies of the New World Avenger, with Laurent Dubois, Julia Gaffield, and Grégory Pierrot

2019 marks the 15th-anniversary of the publication of Laurent Dubois’s Avengers of the New World (2004), the first narrative history of the Haitian Revolution to be published in the English language since the landmark appearance of C.L.R. James’s The Black Jacobins in 1938. Dubois' book heralded a new era of interest in the Haitian Revolution among Anglophone scholars.
