A conversation between Northeastern University’s Régine Michelle Jean-Charles—Dean’s Professor of Culture and Social Justice & Director of Africana Studies—and Dr. Faith Smith of Brandeis University discussing Professor Jean-Charles’s new book, In Looking for Other Worlds: Black Feminism and Haitian Fiction.

In Looking for Other Worlds: Black Feminism and Haitian Fiction, Dr. Régine Michelle Jean-Charles examines the works of three contemporary Haitian women writers through rigorous scholarly analysis, as well as deeply personal reflections…. [Her] own brilliant writing and thinking expertly guides us through this most refreshing, invigorating, nuanced, and thought provoking book.
