Writing the Maghreb started as a google group designed specifically for students in my Moroccan American Studies class to facilitate sharing files and exchanging comments.
I have since become more and more aware of the importance of committing oneself to some sort of online communication with readers and viewers across the world since the technology we have today makes it possible. My blog aims to do exactly that – it is a tiny space for sharing thoughts and reflections.
