  • Re-Registering Moroccans: Mediatized Temporalities and the Politics of Recognition in State Storytelling

    Monday, February 10, 2014 | 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    Wenner-Gren Foundation

    Presented by the Anthropology Section

      • Registration Closed

    The talk examines the process by which a Moroccan television producer re-vitalized a public market story-telling register (rhymed prose way of speaking) associated with proverbs and the wisdom of old folks as a vehicle for modernist liberal messaging. It also describes what several instances of Moroccan audience uptake while watching this program reveal about the salient qualities of re-registering.

    A reception will precede the meeting at 6:00 pm.
