Description du livre: English - French


The publication of my new book which I wrote
with Fatima Sadiqi entitled, "GENDER AND MIGRATION IN MOROCCO", published by Red Sea Press, USA, 2008.

    While this book focuses on the issue of migration and gender in Morocco, it discusses gender issues, particularly the situation of the women left  behind by male migrants.  The book is divided into eight chapters.  The first chapter reviews the theories of migration as a worldwide phenomenon and the gender issues involved therein. Chapter 2 concerns itself with theories of women-headed households.  Chapter 3 deals with the socioeconomic and political context in Morocco. Chapter 4 presents the social situation of women and their different categories in Morocco.

    Chapter 5 is an overview of Moroccan international migration and a review of the literature on the topic. Chapter 6 offers a general profile of migrants, their various characteristics, and further the chapter discusses the evolution of international migration to the European Union countries. Chapter 7 deals with the migration intentions of Moroccans; the causes, impetus, and the consequences of migration on Moroccan society. The final section, Chapter 8, which is based on our  data collection and analysis of the findings, presents the methodology adopted and discusses the results of the fieldwork; this chapter also deals with attitudes toward migration and the implications for the women
left behind.

 Sous la direction du Professeur Moha Ennaji


Préparé par le professeur Moha Ennaji (chercheur universitaire), ce collectif de 166 pages vient d’être publié par l’Institut Royal de la Culture Amazighe. Il comprend un ensemble d’articles motivés par l’intérêt grandissant pour les études de la culture populaire face à la mondialisation.

Les articles traitent de questions liées à l'oralité, notamment la poésie, la chanson, le raï, le conte, le cinéma, les langues, etc. Le but essentiel de ce collectif est de poser la problématique du rapport entre la culure populaire et la culure savante et de soulever des questions relatives aux cultures populaires au Maghreb et leur impact sur les domaines sociaux, politiques, et éducatifs. 


Language and Gender in the Mediterranean Region

   This special issue of The International Journal of the Sociology of Language, devoted entirely to issues of language and gender in the Mediterranean region, encompasses a number of excellent contributions on language and gender in Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Lebanon and the diaspora, within a multi-disciplinary perspective bringing together the insights, methodologies, and concerns of sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, literary theory, history, and gender studies..

    The articles deal with issues related to orality (i.e. the heard and spoken language), investigating memories of feelings and events in which language itself is implicated. A whole array of subjects have been covered here, mainly cultural products such as proverbs, conversations, greetings, compliments, polite formulas, which are an integral part of social behavior.
