New Podcast: Maghrib Past & Present

26 September 2017

We are writing to announce the launch of Maghrib Past & Present | Podcasts www.themaghribpodcast.com podcasts in which artists, writers, and scholars from North Africa, the United States, and beyond can present their ongoing and innovative research on and cultural activities in the Maghrib.


We hope that they might be of classroom interest to you, your colleagues, or your students in your on-going teaching and research. Our podcasts cover a wide variety of subjects pertaining to North Africa, the Mediterranean, the Sahel region of Africa, and the Middle East, including anthropology, archeology, geography, history, linguistics, literature, political science, sociology, and urban sociology. Podcasts can be streamed from our website www.themaghribpodcast.com, and can be downloaded free of charge at iTunes. Use of content for classroom purposes and on other non-profit educational websites is granted (and encouraged) with proper citation.


The podcasts are recorded at research centers, universities, and cultural venues across North Africa and are based on lectures or performances before live audiences. Each podcast includes a brief biography of the scholar or artist as well as a reading list of key works pertaining to the specific theme of the lecture. While many lectures are presented in English, they are too recorded in Arabic, French, Spanish, and Tamazight – living and used languages in North Africa. Podcasts will be posted weekly.
