Cultural Anthropology

My research focuses on the discourses of youth, memory, and art by looking at youth participation in arts events and performances in Marrakech, Morocco. More specifically, I am examining how these art practices allow young people to engage in society through alternative means, as the current situation in Morocco is fraught with alienation and lack of opportunity to be incorporated in the labor market for young people. I want to see how these practices help inform a broader Moroccan collective memory.
