January’s democratic revolution in Tunisia sparked a wave of change throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and turned a spotlight onto this important region. The French-speaking area of North Africa, comprising Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia, is rich in history and provides a lens through which to explore many of the forces shaping the Arab world, from a growing youth population to the role of Islam in society.
Please join us for a weekend professional development workshop to explore the literature, culture and politics of this fascinating region. The workshop will be conducted in French, and will include extensive curricular ideas and resources.
Cost: $25 (covers all sessions, materials, and meals – Friday dinner & Saturday breakfast and lunch). Participants will also receive a copy of Kiffe Kiffe Demain by Faïza Guène.
The remaining costs will be covered through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language program.
