I think the request for information on Vodou was tied to this list (if
not, someone please tell me...) -- I was sent this via personal mail,
most likely because it was not clear _who_ was looking for information --
I am forwarding it to the whole list so that the person who needs it can
have it.

Try Paul Brodwin at UW-Milwaukee (anthro) He
may not be a regular user of e-mail, but his phone can be reached by
calling Anthro dept. (414) 229-4174. They will have his extension.
Also, Patrick Bellgarde-Smith, African-American Studies (he is Haitian)
is a good source. There are quite a few things on urban USA Santeria
(The Dead Sell Memories, but excpt for Lola I am not aware of any
recent studies on vodun. Try Indiana U. Press. Good hunting.
