1. Zoulagh, Latifa. Ni d'ici ni d'ailleurs: Ecrire l'entre-deux chez rajae Benchemsi et Touria Oulehri.

Degree: PhD, 2014, University of Oklahoma

Abstract/Résumé Cette recherche démontre la spécificité de la production romanesque féminine marocaine d’après les années de plomb. Le choix du sujet émane de la nouveauté qui marque cette production littéraire surtout qu’elle met en scène un aspect unique au niveau des représentations culturelles du pays; les œuvres romanesques de certaines écrivaines marocaines de cette génération s’en trouvent sans aucun doute modelées par les différentes manifestations de ces représentations culturelles, se dépouillant du seul souci de s’affirmer en tant qu’un « je » féminin indépendant à la mise en valeur du moi-femme à la marocaine. C’est donc la quête identitaire des femmes marocaines qui rejettent le statut social de femme traditionnel qui leur est imposé par le système patriarcal au même temps qu’elles restent fidèles et fières de leur culture et de leur Histoire qui forme le pivot central de cette étude. A travers les œuvres de Rajae Benchemsi, (Marrakech, lumière d’exil et La Controverse des temps) et celles Touria Oulehri, (La Répudiée et Les Conspirateurs sont parmi nous), on essaie de saisir les caractéristiques et les manifestations de cette identité féminine, comme on tente de déconstruire « le mythe de la femme silencieuse » afin de révéler l’image réelle de la femme marocaine. La mise en avant du corps féminin se présente comme le point culminant de l’identité féminine construite et affichée par les textes étudiés. De fait, le corps féminin constitue l’entité de base marquant la problématique de l’identité proposée aux femmes marocaines et le sujet essentiel dans la confrontation continue entre la tradition et la modernité. This study bears witness to the specificity of the novelistic output of Moroccan women after the end of Hassan II’s reign, the so-called “Years of Lead” (1960-1999). The choice of subject matter derives from the innovation characterizing this literary production, especially insofar as it presents a unique perspective on Moroccan society and culture. By focusing on the different manifestations of this socio-cultural reality, the fiction of this generation of women writers thus moves beyond the sole concern of asserting an independent female “I” in order to underscore the development of the self of the Moroccan woman within a particular context. The identity quest of Moroccan women who reject their traditional social status as imposed by an entrenched patriarchal system yet remain loyal to and proud of their culture and history forms the backbone of this study. Through the works of Rajae Benchemsi (Marrakech, lumière d’exil and La Controverse des temps) and those of Touria Oulehri (La Répudiée and Les Conspirateurs sont parmi nous), this study examines the characteristics and manifestations of female identity insofar as they constitute an attempt to deconstruct the “myth of the silent woman,” thereby revealing a more accurate depiction of Moroccan women. These works foreground the female body as central to the construction of female identity. In fact, the female body… Advisors/Committee Members: Winston, Michael (advisor), Davis, Jennifer (committee member), Genova, Pamela (committee member), Abramson, Julia (committee member), Lantelme, Michel (committee member), Whalen, Logan (committee member).

2. Slitine El Mghari, Nisrine. La ville marocaine: une quête du vécu, de la mémoire, et des tiers lieux dans le roman du XXe et XXIe siècles.

Degree: PhD, 2018, University of Oklahoma

Generally, work in the area of Moroccan literature treats Arabophone and Francophone texts as separate domains. My dissertation, entitled “La ville marocaine: une quête du vécu, de la mémoire, et des tiers lieux dans le roman du XXe et XXIe siècles,” remedies this state of affairs by bringing together texts in both languages. My research focuses on representations of the city in 20th- and 21st-century Francophone and Arabophone Moroccan literature. In more specific terms, my work concerns itself with the different social, historical, and political forces that, together, contribute to the construction of urban spaces, and it draws on various critical and theoretical fields, including cultural memory studies, gender studies, and literary studies, while at the same time considering different contemporary Moroccan urban structures from a spatio-temporal perspective. The first chapter of my dissertation offers an overview of the modern Moroccan city as it transitions from a space of holism and communal life in precolonial Morocco to one of ethnic division, ethical egoism, and materialism during the French Protectorate (1912 -1956). I subsequently look at the social segregations that persist in the postcolonial era, a period of disillusionment and disenchantment in modern Morocco, a nation-state characterized by social, religious, and political strife. To this end, I consider novels by 'Abdurrahīm Jīrān, Mahi Binebine, Muḥammad al-Ash'arī, Youssouf Amine Elalamy, and Youssef Jébri and draw on colonial and postcolonial writings of thinkers such as Frantz Fanon, Albert Memmi, and Hélé Béji. My second chapter addresses the city as a territory of individual and collective memory in literary works by Aḥmad al-Madīnī, Binebine, and Edmond Amran El Maleh. Here I examine various cultural monuments, including sanctuaries, city squares, gardens, songs, popular expressions, texts, and historical personalities, insofar as they function as lieux de mémoire according to Pierre Nora’s usage of the term. These components of Moroccan cultural heritage function as manifestations of history through memory, rooted both in material and immaterial figures, and constitute national identity. Finally, in my third chapter, I analyze novels by Zakya Daoud, Fatima Mernissi, and Malīka Mustaḍraf and the way in which they portray the emergence of what Janet Abu-Lughod calls a “semi-public” sphere, a space of everyday social practice for men and women in the Islamic city. This space arises as the result of women leaving the private sphere to which they were generally limited in order to participate in the public sphere—typically defined as a male realm in Moroccan society. Although some women writers employ this concept of “the third space” to illustrate an accessible territory in constant movement, others resort to it to depict a space of clashes and, at times, transgression.
