Vitality and Dynamism

summary
In Moroccan studies, literary criticism has focused on questions of migration, identity, secularism, and religious fanaticism—issues that often examine Morocco within a colonial context. This book redefines this focus in Moroccan studies by looking at local themes and movements, including the relationships between subcultures and languages within Morocco. Topics in the volume include concepts of the self, intersections of self-identity and community, and the Moroccan reclaiming of identity in the postcolonial sphere. By extending discussion beyond traditional concepts, “Vitality and Dynamism” celebrates a new side of Moroccan literature
