Edward Paulino is an assistant professor in the Department of Global History at John Jay College/CUNY. A Latin Americanist and Caribbeanist by training his forthcoming book “Dividing Hispaniola: the Dominican Republic’s Border Campaign against Haiti, 1930-1961,” traces the origin and relationship of the Dominican state with Haiti through its porous border region and its local citizens, including anti-Haitian policies such as the 1937 genocidal massacre.

Come and listen to his lecture in which he examines the 1937 Haitian Massacre and how this research led to a wider dialogue in how Dominicans and its diaspora remember and respond to the memory of this little known 20th century genocide in the Americas.
