This project aims to shed light on Moroccan travellers and immigrants to Britain and America from the early modern period to the first half of the 20th century. It explores Moroccan cross-cultural encounters with and experience in the Anglo-American world. Moroccan travellers brought with them to these countries Oriental cultural productions and knowledge about Islam. Another aim of the project is to understand how Moroccans understood and interacted with the wider world and how their identities were refashioned beyond borders.
