Founded in 808, Fès is often called “the best preserved mediaeval city” in North Africa. Held to be Morocco’s spiritual capital, it is both a magnet for pilgrims from sub-Saharan Africa and a major draw for tourists from all over the world in search of “something cultural.” Examine globalization in this unique city and in particular how it has an impact on local culture and communications. See how the city and its businesses are using festivals to build the city’s ‘brand’. The Festival of Culinary Diplomacy coincides with our visit. An excursion to the Roman site of Volubilis and nearby Moulay Idriss is also planned.

Led by Profs. Waddick Doyle and Justin McGuinness
