Haitian Americans: A research guide

Document Type


Publication Date



Purpose - This paper aims to provide a research guide with recent resources in a variety of formats covering issues related to Haitian Americans and Haitian migration to the USA. Design/methodology/approach- Local and union online catalogs, electronic indexes, bibliographies, and the worldwide web were searched to identify relevant items. Items were annotated after personal examination of the material, or after consultation of published reviews and abstracts. Findings - The literature covering this population group is dominated by research from scholars addressing social identity, health issues, religious practices, and the socio-economic and political determinants of migration. Originality/value - No previous print bibliography has been limited in scope to Haitians in the USA. The few bibliographies that do address this population group are dated and do not reference recent literature. Furthermore, none of the previously published bibliographies consulted by the compiler include references to audio-visual materials and web sites.
