Abstract:This volume gathers papers presented at a conference organized in 2002 at the University of Tétouan (Morocco) on the concept of marginality within the centre - periphery binarism. Topics ranged from theoretical concerns challenging the adequacy of the theory as theory through the problematics of how theory relates to empirical reality, up to practical issues dragging to the forefront the assumed immunity of theory. The conference questioned whether the margin does indeed need a theory. Contributions: The end of theory in the age of post-tradition (Said Graiouid); Redefining the margins: embodied knowledge in 'Ali and a spinner too?' (Hasna Lebbadi); The East and the West: relation of centre and margin (Abderrazzak Essrhir); Re-writing slavery from the 'edge' (Ahmed Idrissi Alami); Discursive colonialities and post-colonialities (Mohamed Dellal); Les mots captifs: reading and writing Algeria (Andrew Hussey); Being on the margins: North Africans, Islam and republicanism in France (Driss Maghraoui); Fatima Mernissi's Islamic feminism(s); towards an enabling post-foundationalist Islamic feminism (Raja Rhouni); Moorish figures and figures of resistance (Khalid Bekkaoui); Moroccan writing in English and the untranslatability of culture (Hassan Hakim); Eye for eye? A reading in the travel accounts of P. Bowles and A. Akbib (Mohamed El Kouche); 'Tangiers' eyes' and the anxiety of writing exile (Khalid Amine). [ASC Leiden abstract]
