UIA to Organize Conference on Jewish Onomastics in Morocco


Themes detailed in the conference description include Jewish languages and cultures in North Africa, and the history of Jews in Morocco.

Rabat - Agadir-based international university Universiapolis is hosting a conference from November 23-25 on the political and social significance of Morocco’s Jewish heritage.

The conference, titled “Jewish Onomastics in Morocco: Political, Economic, and Territorial Implications,” will be organized by the doctoral department of the Agadir’s Universiapolis.

The conference aims to tackle the intricate relationship between Onomastics, the origin of names, and political, economic, and territorial constraints. The main argument of the conference is that Jewish names in spelling and pronunciation are conditioned by economic, political, and territorial factors.
