History Information:

This course is a study-abroad program that encourages students to visit a French-speaking country other than France. It does not replace any other courses but is an addition to other study-abroad options. The emphasis on storytelling will allow me to broach many different subjects, such as history, ceramics, weaving and storytelling, which all align nicely with various sites to be visited in Morocco.
This course meets the Discipline goal of encouraging more UMM students to explore Francophone countries, and it will count toward the ONE cross-listed course taught in English that students may apply toward their French major.
This course will be structured as Field Work, where students will visit many cultural and historical sites in Morocco to learn about the ways that these sites contribute to modern Moroccan identity. Students will also read several books and articles to enhance what they learn on-site. Finally, they will keep a journal of what they learn at each site, and they will write two papers.
