"Ain't I a person? : Tout moun sé moun" is a mini-symposium that deploys Caribbean/Black studies as a platform to explore how communities see others and envision themselves. This symposium considers theories associated with construction of self, personhood, and resistance as ways of conceiving and analyzing the construction of intercultural and diverse communities.

Session 1- 3:30-4:30: This panel examines the question of performance and construction of identity, outside of the performing arts, in the US and in Haiti. The first paper will examine the relationship between Irish and African-American people living in New-York during the antebellum period. The second paper will concentrate on the relationship between the Haitian government and Jewish refugees during WWII.
