I hope this blog finds you well and in good health. Let this be a way for you (my dear family and friends and strangers) to see what I’m seeing during my year abroad in Morocco.
I have an internship with the Chair UNESCO (Women and Their Rights) which is headquartered at the Mohamed V University in Rabat as well as Ibn Tofail Univeristy in Kenitra. I am also taking classical Arabic courses at the Center for Cross Cultural Learning (CCCL) in Rabat and some French courses and a course on globalization at Ibn Tofail. I may additionally endeavor to sit in on a masters class on gender studies, and possibly observe a few classes in the English department. In theory, I will focus the bulk of my second half on field work and interviewing for a research topic. However my schedule and activities develops as the year marches on, I will be earning credit at Humboldt State University, my home school. To the gracious and supportive World Languages and Cultures Department, shokran bzaff.
Nothing is set in stone. Stay in touch.
