Course Description This seminar examines the history of anticolonial struggles in the Maghreb (including Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and Libya) from conquest to independence. The aim of the course is for students to analyze the history and historiography of different anticolonial struggles in the Maghreb, and to engage with broader questions about colonialism, popular resistance, ‘Islamic’ politics, and nationalism. These questions include: What was the nature of European colonialism in the Maghreb? How did it differ from both earlier imperial projects, and across the region? How can we understand the history of Maghrebi responses to colonialism outside the binary of collaboration and resistance? What was the role of Islam in anticolonial struggles in the Maghreb, and how did this change between early resistance to conquest and later struggles for independence? Finally, how did different nationalist movements define the national community?
