STUDY TOUR TO MOROCCO PLANNED


OCT. 14, 2005--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is sponsoring a study to Morocco March 10-18, 2006. An informational meeting will be held on November 2 at 6:30 p.m. in room B107 of the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building.

The Kingdom of Morocco is truly at the crossroads of the world. For thousands of years, its location at the northwest tip of Africa has allowed it to absorb elements of European, Sub-Saharan African and Arab culture. As a result, its culture, history, religion, art and politics is a mélange that makes it unique among nations.  

This tour will provide an opportunity for students of all ages to study Moroccan art, archaeology, architecture and culture with an emphasis on the culture and religion of modern Morocco as well as the art and archaeology of Islamic Morocco and pre-Islamic Morocco

The program will be led by UW-RF art faculty member Steven Derfler. For more information on cost, registration deadline and itinerary, contact Derfler at 715-425-0639 or   steven.l.derfler@uwrf.edu .
