Fictions of Conflict: Questioning Alterity in Spanish and Moroccan War Narrative

This proposal is part of a book project that will help reconstruct the fictional and non-fictional accounts of military conflicts between Spain and Morocco, beginning with colonial chronicles of the 1859-60 African War and ending with anti-war novels of the 1930s. The texts display reactions to the Moroccan which range from exclusion to inclusion; from villainization to belief in an exotic African. These attitudes subsume Morocco to exploit or cancel its Otherness and thereby render the history of the Arab-as-enemy an impossible task. Here I propose to research accounts of these military conflicts written from the Moroccan perspective that challenge the official version Spain divulged via its Protectorate in Morocco.
