Reparative histories and healing contemporaries: A comparative investigation into transnational movements for reparations in the Americas


Dr Kate Quinn and Dr Par Engstrom


My research is funded by a UCL Research Opportunity Scholarship

This PhD project pursues a comparative analysis of reparations movements in Haiti, Colombia, and Ecuador, encompassing geographic and historical comparisons, allowing for the identification of patterns and intricate connections between the local, global and transnational. It considers the extent to which the transnational affects the national movements in the quest for reparations, healing, transformative justice and the reimagination of afro-futures.
