Dear Colleagues/Chères collègues,
We are seeking presenters to join our panel on education and indigenous strategies of resistance in colonial North Africa, for the upcoming FCHS conference in Seattle. Our aim is to explore in comparative perspective the ways in which education acted as a central site of political contestation and cultural negotiation between the French colonial state and the indigenous populations of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia.
