With all the press focusing on disasters and poverty in Haiti, this might seem outlandish. Paul Clammer doesn't think so, though. He is the author of the 2013 Brandt Travel Guide to Haiti, the first tourist guide to Haiti to come out in decades. Clammer is suggesting that people reconsider how they think about Haiti and consider new narratives in which Haiti is a source of fun, education, and wonder.
 
Come to the Haiti Lab on Feb 18 at noon to talk with Paul Clammer about how tourism may be able to help Haiti and open minds.
 
Here is an article Clammer wrote recently, "Is Haiti the Caribbean's Best New Tourist Destination?":
