Listen to an interview with Alejandra Bronfman about American Imperialism’s Undead on the New Books Network. The book is described as “wide-ranging and compelling,” and the discussion includes the origins of the book, some of the major literary and political figures influenced by the occupation of Haiti such as C.L.R. James, Eric Walrond, George Padmore, and Marcus and Amy Jacques Garvey, and new directions in Caribbean Studies.
The panel Professor Dalleo organized for the 2017 Modern Language Association convention, “Caribbean Specters in 1920s Harlem,” has been selected for the conference’s presidential theme. Dalleo will be presenting material about Eric Walrond from my new book, American Imperialism’s Undead: The Occupation of Haiti and the Rise of Caribbean Anticolonialism. He will be joined by Vanessa Valdes, Imani Owens, and James Davis, who will present papers on Arturo Schomburg, Eulalie Spence, and Nella Larsen.
The panel takes place on Sunday, January 8, 2017, from noon to 1:15 pm in the Pennsylvania Convention Center, room 112A.

Raphael Dalleo’s essay on the U.S. occupation of Haiti appears in the most recent issue of sx salon. The special issue, guest edited by Vanessa Valdes, is titled “Haiti in the Hispanophone Caribbean Literary Imaginary.” Dalleo’s contribution takes research from his new book, American Imperialism’s Undead, to argue for the importance of the U.S. occupation from 1915 to 1934 to understanding Hispanic Caribbean writing about Haiti.
