Morocco Study Trip Info Session Nov. 15

NOV. 3, 2006--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is sponsoring a study tour to Morocco March 9-17 and an information session is set for Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 6:30 p.m. in Room B107 of the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building on campus.

The Kingdom of Morocco is truly at the crossroads of the world, according to UWRF art faculty member Steven Derfler, who will lead the tour.   For thousands of years, Morocco's location at the northwest tip of Africa has allowed it to absorb elements of European, Sub-Saharan African, and Arab cultures in its quest for identity. As a result, its culture, history, religion, art and politics are a unique blend among nations today, Defler says.

The study tour will provide an opportunity for students of all ages to study Moroccan art, archaeology, architecture and culture.
