On “Vodouphobia” and the “Haitian Turn”

On “Vodouphobia” and the “Haitian Turn”

So, in various publications I have been acknowledged that I coined the terms “Vodouphobia” & “Vodouphobic discourse.” I never paid attention if someone has previously used both concepts prior to the publication of my article on the subject. Yet many individuals have claimed that I coined both terms. Oh well, I will take the credit if it is true and academically justified 🙂

In the same line of thought, in various academic works, it is true that I coined the phrase “The Haitian Turn” in my doctoral dissertation (UT Dallas: PhD, 2012) 🙂

Well, I am bragging again. lol
