Cultural representation has been a hot commodity in academia since the advent of postcolonial and cultural studies.
This book investigates the various images of the West(s) in the Moroccan contemporary novel.
The study shows that the representation of the West was oftentimes paradoxical and ambivalent; it was neither entirely homogeneous nor fixed because it largely succumbed to the mutable sociopolitical and historical contexts determining the West-East/Morocco relations.
More importantly, the writer's personal experiences and ideological backgrounds are determining factors in shaping the image of the West.
The close reading of five Moroccan novels in this book demonstrates the heterogeneity of conceptions vis-à-vis cultural Otherness.
Youssef El Kaidi gained a Master's degree in Cultural Studies from the University of Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah in 2010.
He is currently writing a PhD thesis on Cultural Representation in the Moroccan Novel.
El Kaidi is a correspondent of Morocco World News and he has written extensively on the recent socio-political upheavals in the MENA region
