Minor Culture and Society in Morocco
FALL 2020: A HYBRID MINOR
Due to COVID-19 and the health and safety measures, the form of the minor Culture and Society in Morocco 2020 was adjusted conform Leiden University policy. The courses will be largely digital, supplemented where possible with on-campus activities.
The first part of the minor is taught online and includes some on campus meetings. You can find more information about the different courses in the course descriptions.
Case studies on Moroccan culture and society
Methods of qualitative research
Intensive language instruction ( Moroccan Arabic or French)
The second part of the minor will be partly online and partly on-site if the circumstances allow it. You will carry out your own ethnographic research in the form of digital and visual ethnography. NIMAR will organise an intensive study trip of two weeks to Morocco* in which you go on excursions in Rabat and neighbouring cities and further develop your language and research skills.
*The study trip only takes place if the circumstances allow it and within the safety measures set by the Dutch and Moroccan government. If the intensive study trip cannot take place, students will carry out their research online, based on digital ethnography and visual ethnography supported by ethnographic reporting.
