New Publication by Osire Glacier – Freedom for Morocco: A Family Tale New Publication by Osire Glacier – Freedom for Morocco: A Family Tale June 27, 2022Research spotlightsDr. Osire Glacier of the Department of Religion, Society and Culture has authored a new monograph entitled Freedom for Morocco: A Family Tale.Freedom for Morocco: A Family Tale is a historical and autobiographical book. By weaving together two intertwined narratives, a personal account invites readers into the home of one Moroccan family. A collective narrative reveals the shared struggles of Moroccan citizens for democracy. By alternating between micro- and macro-histories, this book presents fragments that have long been erased from the history of contemporary Morocco. Thus, it offers a corrective re-examination of concepts and key events conveyed by official historical sources from 1921 to the present day, notably Morocco’s anti-colonial uprisings, the emergence of neocolonialism under the guise of formal independence, the institutionalization of predatory capitalism, the establishment of a democratic façade, the Islamization politics of the governing elite and the emergence of Islamism.Dr. Glacier new book is available on this website.
