The Morocco Dialogue Program engages students with the culture, civilization, and people of Morocco: from the ancient capitals of Fez and Marrakesh, the Amazigh villages of the High Atlas Mountains, and Moroccan immigrants living and working in France. The main themes of this year’s program will focus on issues of economic development as shaped by the colonial past as well as post-colonial/Cold War and post-Cold War (globalization) dynamics.
As part of Africa and the Arab Middle East, with ties to an ancient and adaptive Amazigh culture, firmly integrated into the Islamic world, and linked to the French colonial past as well as the EU, Morocco offers a unique set of opportunities and experiences for history and international affairs students in general, and those interested in Islam, Multicultural Societies, Imperialism, and Post-Colonial Development in Africa and the Middle East in particular.
