How can we understand protest, especially the complexity of gender, generation, class, and multiple national identifications?  How can stories by Muslim women teach us about protest and resistance?

In this course in Morocco and Spain, we will study Moroccan women writers, focusing course packet and on Scheherazade Goes West, The Secret Son, and Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits.
