Between Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Arab World: The complicated identity of the Maghreb

 

Dr. Ziad Bentahar

Department of Foreign Languages

 

The Maghreb is the area in Northwestern Africa usually viewed as the former French colonies of Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia. It is a part of the world often viewed as existing “between” various regions and spaces: Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Arab World. This is based on an implicit assumption that these regions and spaces are mutually-exclusive. We will seek to dismantle this problematic assumption from a comparative literary perspective.

 

This event is open to all faculty, staff, and students!
