My main research interests are interdisciplinary as I focus on questions rather than any specific disciplinary field of study. My current projects are: 1. A book which seeks to think about the questions of human freedom historically and in our present . The book is called "And What about the Human? Wither Human Emancipation and Human Freedom."2. An edited Reader on Black Political Thought. 3 A series of projects on Haitian art.
