The Ideological Aspects of English Language Teaching in Morocco ab 54.99 EURO An Investigation Into The Linguistic Version of Imperialism in Morocco
The writer and composer, Paul Bowles, one of America's most famous expatriates, died in Tangier on November 18, 1999. He had lived there for more than half a century. Bowles' writings cover the different changes Morocco witnessed stretching from colonial times to independence. Although Bowles wrote for a Western audience, he played a great role in bringing attention to Moroccan popular culture. Still, Bowles' writings raise a series of controversies among Moroccan intellectuals. My choice of studying Paul Bowles' representation1 of North Africa is delimited by my interest in the politico-ideological implication of the literary text and by the fact that Bowles is the most prominent American writer who had lived for more than half a century in Tangier, and whose fiction and non-fiction largely deal with North African, particularly Moroccan culture and society. "...'culture' is used to refer to whatever is distinctive about 'the way of life' of a people...".
Feminism in the twenty-first century has become increasingly diversified. In fact, the very diverse and complex natures of its discourses give credence and validity to the concept feminisms . feminisms is a term that refers to the variety of approaches and strategies that are consistent with the aim of defending women's rights. In Morocco, it was remarkable that two distinct trends have emerged holding different ideological grounds but approving the same goal of changing women s low status. Consequently, these trends are generating different approaches and strategies to mobilize the social change in Morocco from different perspectives. Eventually, they manifest a deep and fruitful complementariness in the Moroccan feminist body.
This book focuses on Moroccan sociolinguistic dynamics of change. Its aim is to analyse the changing contemporary situation of Moroccan Arabic as a local language and linguistic resource. Starting with a critical sociolinguistic overview of language policy in Morocco, the book aims to respond to the following questions: How do new linguistic practices in Morocco contribute to a restructuring of the Moroccan linguistic field? Will the new local multilingual practices, specifically the use of Moroccan Arabic in writing and other communicative modalities, play an important role in the social and political empowerment as well as the standardisation of this linguistic variety? Finally, the book examines current attempts to achieve a standardisation of the written variety of Moroccan Arabic, and how these attempts are influenced by a number of factors, including political, ideological and obviously sociolinguistic dynamics of change.
Islamism in Morocco encompasses a large spectrum of trends that differ greatly in their ideological tenets and the extent of their ambitions. The Jama'a Al Adl Wal Ihsan (Justice and Spirituality Group) forged a different path through its uncompromising and challenging patterns of activism. At the crossroads of a congested geopolitical environment, the group advocates an intricate ideology that espouses Sufism and political Islam along with an uncensored exposure to competing ideologies in the West. The aim of this study is to disclose the JSG's ideology as regards the ideal model of governance in the Muslim state based primarily on discourse and through subsequent correlations with the Moroccan political context. The book proposes a conscientious analysis of the discourse articulated by the leading figures of Jama'at Al Adl Wal Ihsan using the linguistic tools availed by Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) and guided by the concepts of Post-structural discourse theory. The proposed analysis will enable academics in the fields of political science, Islamism, and discourse analysis to come to grips with the Jama'a's vision on the so called ideal Islamic state .
This book is motivated by an insistent curiosity to accurately understand the assertion that English Language Teaching is not something of a closed box concerned only with technical matters and didactic routines, rather the operation is fraught with socio-political and economic ideologies. Actually, ELT is perceived as a complex machinery that normalizes and propagates certain ELT principles as "taken for granted" assumptions that would keep the English- speaking countries the main monopolizers of resources and information, the legal owners of knowledge and the inter-continental exporters of innovation and expertise. In a neo-colonial era, it seems that ELT has substituted military machinery to act as a socio-political tool at the West's disposal to maintain their hegemony, assert their supremacy and exert power over their former colonies in a bid to realize their socio-political and economic interests. To investigate this very controversial assertion, the book focuses exclusively on some popular foreign and local English Language Centers (ELC) through a critical discourse analysis of slogans, texts and pictorial prompts in their websites to provide answers to the book's hypothesis
Cultural representation has been a hot commodity in academia since the advent of postcolonial and cultural studies. This book investigates the various images of the West(s) in the Moroccan contemporary novel. The study shows that the representation of the West was oftentimes paradoxical and ambivalent, it was neither entirely homogeneous nor fixed because it largely succumbed to the mutable sociopolitical and historical contexts determining the West-East/Morocco relations. More importantly, the writer's personal experiences and ideological backgrounds are determining factors in shaping the image of the West. The close reading of five Moroccan novels in this book demonstrates the heterogeneity of conceptions vis-à-vis cultural Otherness.
