Terry Burke: “The Ethnographic State: France & the Invention of Moroccan Islam”

December 3, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

| Humanities 1, Room 210 | Free

TERRY BURKE
Research Professor of History, UCSC

Alone among Muslim countries, Morocco is known for its own national form of Islam, “Moroccan Islam.” In his most recent book The Ethnographic State, Professor Burke argues that Moroccan Islam was actually invented in the early twentieth century by French ethnographers and colonial officers influenced by British colonial practices in India. Through this process the monarchy was resurrected and Morocco was reinvented as a modern polity.
