The Center for Maghrib Studies at Arizona State University (CMS) is organizing a conference on “Minorities in the Maghrib,” in Djerba Island, Tunisia, May 20th – 22nd, 2022. The axes of the conference revolve around the historical formation and development of minorities, and the process of “minoritizing” and marginalizing in the contemporary Maghrib. The projection of minorities in the future will also be a central concern. The organizing committee welcomes proposals that encompass all aspects of the minority question in the Maghrib. It is important to hear as many voices as possible and explore effective strategies in confronting relevant questions such as sexism, racism, xenophobia, and intolerance in all its forms, and inscribing them in school curricula as means to building a better and more inclusive Maghrib.

The organizing committee plans to publish a selection of papers in a journal or as an edited volume.
