The 2017 NEH Summer Institute Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia: The Voices of Women in Literature, Cinema and Other Arts since Independence will be held at Oregon State University from June 26 to July 14, 2017. Because to date no comprehensive assessment has been attempted of post-colonial Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia from the perspective of the region’s cultural artistic vitality, the intent of this institute is to shed light on the significance of North African artistic expressions today. Expressions in the literary, visual and musical arts with origins in Berber, Arabic and European idioms; expressions that have adapted to modernity, postcolonialism, the reality of globalism and advances of social media. The institute will bring together leading scholars in North African studies and twenty-five college and university teachers wishing to expand their coursework or research on contemporary North Africa.
