12th Annual History of Art and Architecture Student Symposium
The 2013 court ruling, "La Sentencia," stripped citizenship from Dominicans of Haitian descent. The State's assault on national membership questions the right of over one-quarter million individuals to
exist within the boundaries of the Dominican Republic. This attempt to contain race and nation creates frightening degrees of vulnerability for all Haitians in the country. This panel will historicize "La Sentencia," as well as discuss educational-activist organizing in both the Dominican Republic and the Diaspora surrounding this struggle for citizenship.
