Program Description:

Program

The goal of this course is to explore issues related to identity through exposure to a North African country. In particular, students will examine how Moroccan identity has, over the centuries, been shaped by questions of gender, nationality, language, religion, and interaction with the West. The course will be taught in Morocco over a period of 3 weeks. Various scholarly methods - including text, conference lectures, and visits to sites of historical and cultural importance - will be employed to facilitate student understanding of the complexity of Moroccan identity.

In addition to the experience in Morocco, students will participate in two sessions at Marquette University. One will take place in late April and the other in early May, both prior to trip.
