The macaques at the rock of Gibraltar

SNAP Bulletin

A new quarterly blog from the Spain North Africa Project (SNAP)

The inaugural SNAP Bulletin focuses on the shift from the early modern to the modern and its consequences for both Moroccan and Spanish actors in the western Mediterranean. From an eighteenth century ambassadorial mission to the twentieth century establishment of Tetouan’s Centro de Arte Moderno, Eric Calderwood’s description of the two as ‘strange bedfellows’ is ever present in the background.

The blog begins with a Story Map that I created to document al-Miknasi’s 1779 Mission. For more information about using Story Maps in the classroom and as a pedogogical tool, feel free to contact me!

A special thanks also goes out to our first contributors: Tina Barouti, Liz Matsushita, Eric Calderwood, and Linda Gale-Jones. Enjoy!
