In this essay, anthropologist Greg Beckett responds to Rivke Jaffe’s, Nadège T. Clitandre’s, and Jhon Picard Byron’s critical engagements with his 2019 ethnography, There Is No More Haiti: Between Life and Death in Port-au-Prince. Beckett discusses issues of representation and form, how gender and age shape people’s experience of crisis, the discourse of Haitian exceptionalism, and the need to rethink crisis in Haiti from the standpoint of the conceptual categories and lived experiences of those who most directly feel the brunt of the destructive forces of predatory capitalism, political instability, and foreign intervention.
