Description

This book presents a wide variety of articles from LAMALIF, Morocco’s longest-serving Moroccan Francophone journal. LAMALIF was active between 1966 and 1988, covering the most critical periods of Moroccan history and engaging in the most crucial debates about democratization, feminism, culture, education, Third World relations, and decolonization. LAMALIF was not just a journal. It was a school, where Morocco’s, North Africa’s and the developing world’s brilliant writers, artists, and thinkers found a space to disseminate their ideas and addresses readerships across different cultures and geographical areas in French. This anthology is the first comprehensive translation of a wide selection of articles that cover literary and art criticism as well as critical theory, feminism, Islam, and emigration. The anthology also makes available to Anglophone readerships articles about transnational solidarities and connections between North Africa and the rest of the world. LAMALIF is an anthology that historizes a cultural project within the difficult period of authoritarianism in Morocco and reveals that culture was a trenchant weapon in the struggle against silence and suppression.

  • The first English anthology of articles from the longest-serving journal in Morocco.
  • A comprehensive and interdisciplinary anthology that combines the literary with the political and the social.
  • A very rich compilation of articles that restore conversations from the past without belonging to the past.
  • LAMALIF offers an insightful journey into the politics of culture and society under authoritarian siege.
  • LAMALIF offers a fresh perspective on the pressing issues of multilingualism and multiculturalism and migration in Morocco, Europe, and Africa.
