PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
This winter program will be a twenty-four day immersion in the history, culture, politics, languages and geography of Morocco, a unique North African or Maghrebi country, its influence over time on Spain, and the subsequent Spanish influence over it.

The first portion of the program will take place in Spain examining the Moorish influence on Spanish culture, history, and language. Students will engage in supervised visits to key locations in Spain along with either morning or afternoon formal classes depending on schedule needs. Flying into Madrid, students will spend time in Madrid with day excursions to Toledo, El Escorial, and Valladolid before moving on to Torremolinos with excursions to Malaga, Cordoba, Sevilla and Grenada.
The second portion of the program will take place in Morocco. After arriving in Tangier students will continue to Chaouen with key sites in each. Students will move on to Fez, the religious capital of Morocco and the Moors. Students will participate in a guided 4x4 and camel tour of the desert along a traditional Berber route including a campout in the desert near Merzouga. Students will cross the High Atlas into the desert city of Ouarzazate to explore the source of Moorish wealth that enabled it to maintain control of Andalusia. Students will travel from Ouarzazate to Marrakech. Finally, students will travel to Rabat via Casablanca.

Students will take two courses for the program:
HUM 399 : Cultures in Contact — The culture of Spain with particular emphasis on the rich cultural relationship between Spain and Morocco from their beginnings to present.
POLSC 430: Political Culture in the Euro-Maghreb (Spain and Morocco) — This course examines the rich cultural legacy of the Arab Berber conquest of Spain through the lens of political culture before examining the roots of the Moorish conquest in Morocco. The course also looks at the contemporary political culture of Morocco to show how political culture evolves.
This interdisciplinary program is an examination of Image, Narrative and Myth in Modern Japanese Literature and Design. Coursework consists of projects through which we reflect critically on literary and visual works; document our experience and translate it into visual narratives; exchange our analyses of experiences and course texts through blogs and seminar style presentations. The study of narrative – written and visual – extends into a culminating course project of design authorship emphasizing personal experience in place.
