Our goal in this course is to debunk the misrepresentation of Vodou and shed light on its true essence and its place in Haitian life. Through lectures, readings, research, multi-media resources, field trips, the course will explore Vodou’s foundational characteristics and thus offer the students the opportunity to acquire a better understanding of the subject and form a more informed point of view about it.
This course will develop eight topics to be covered in eight seminars of four hours each. Sessions will consist of a mixture of lectures, discussions, exams and various class activities.
