Cadeau! Giveaway! Kado!

As Nadève mentioned in her last post, things have been very slow here at Tande of late. We wanted to take the time to do something new and appreciate our readers who have been patient during this time as we adjust to new work  and  family schedules. In fact, we appreciate you so much that we wanted to express our gratitude with a reader giveaway contest! Here is how it works: write in and tell us in the comment section what your favorite Tande post is and why. We will select a winner on May 10th, and as a prize you get the newest issue of the  illustrious Journal of Haitian Studies (JOHS) for free. That way you will have an important piece of this rich archive of information about Haitian culture, literature, history and scholarship at your fingertips without even having to go online! The issue is dedicated to Michel-Rolph Trouillot, and guest edited by Nadève.

Comme Nadève a mentionné dans son dernier texte, on fonctionne au ralenti ici à Tande ces derniers mois. Nous voudrions faire quelque chose de nouveau pour montrer notre appréciation à nos lecteurs qui ont fait preuve de patience pendant ce moment d'ajustement à de nouvelles responsabilités familiales et professionnelles. Nous vous apprécions tellement que nous voulons exprimer notre gratitude avec un concours! Voila comment cela marche: Dans les commentaires, dites nous quel est votre préféré parmi les textes du site et pourquoi. Nous allons sélectionner un gagnant le 10 mai et comme prix vous allez obtenir le nouveau numéro de l'illustre revue d'études haïtiennes (JOHS) gratuitement. Ainsi, vous aurez des informations sur la culture, la littérature, et l'histoire haïtienne, à portée de main! Ce numéro est dédié à la mémoire de Michel-Rolph Trouillot et a été édité par Nadève.

Kòm Nadève mensyone nan dènye tèks li a, sèjousi, pa gen twòp aktivite sou sit Tande a. Nou deside fè yon jès pou montre apresyasyon nou pou lektè nou yo ki genyen anpil pasyans ak nou pandan nap abitye ak nouvo orè travay ak nouvo orè fanmi nou. Nou si tèlman apresye nou, nou vle eksprime gratitid nou avèk yon konkou! Men ki jan li fonksyone:  nan  seksyon kòmantè sit la, di nou ki tèks Tande nou pi renmen epi eksplike poukisa. 10 me, n ap chwazi yon moun k ap resevwa dènye nimewo revi etid ayisyen an (JOHS) kòm kado. Konsa, w ap genyen anpil enfòmasyon sou kilti, literati ak istwa ayisyen nan men ou! Nimewo sa a rann omaj bay Michel-Rolp Trouillot epi se Nadève ki edite l.

  1. J'apprécie énormément votre blogue. Mon article préféré est "Teaching Beyond a Single Story" (du 19 avril 2010) (en général, tous les articles dont il est question de la littérature haitienne et surtout de l'enseignement de la littérature comme j'enseigne actuellement la littérature haitienne en Allemagne).

  2. Merci, Kerstin!

    J'ajoute un commentaire pour un de nos lecteurs fidèles qui n'arrive pas à le faire:

    First of all, let me state it upfront: it is hard to pick one out of all these great posts from two bloggers/academics with a record of more than 80 posts over 4 years. I have been following Tande since its very beginning in April 2010, and my point is that every single post brings something new in showcasing the Haitian literature and/or culture. Therefore, I used to take a bird-eye view on the blog by focusing on the whole gold mine rather than nuggets.

    That said, one of my favorite posts is “Vwayaj literè” from Nadève Ménard posted on September 11, 2012. I particularly enjoyed this one-of-a-kind, vivid summer vacation account.This tale involved a blend of Haitian history, geography, literature and culture, all in just one post! I could basically picture myself following in the writer’s footsteps as she went from places to places.

    For a native Haitian, this post could recall great memories of Haiti. It also makes you want to sightsee the inner country or places you have not been to yet. For a foreigner, it sounds like a call to “experience Haiti”. What a beautiful image of “la perle des Antilles” is portrayed in that account ! Actually, these are actual snapshots and landscapes you get to see when, leaving the daily grind in Port-au-Prince, you start traveling all around the country. As the blogger puts it: “tande ak wè se de” (it is one thing to hear about it, but it is a another one to see it with your own eyes)

    And as summer break is coming soon, maybe it’s time to think about starting all over again another “Vwayaj literè”.

    Kudos !

  3. And since our readers seem to be a little slow to take advatantage of this great offer, we'll give you a few extra days to post your comment here. Vous avez jusqu'à la fin de la semaine -- le 16 mai pour participer au concours. Bonne chance!
