Ambivalent Images of Otherness(es) in the War and the Spanish Occupation of Tetouan (1859–1862)

Abstract In this article the ambivalent nature of the constructions of both Spanish and internal Otherness(es) will be argued by presenting excerpts of different Arabic sources related to the War of Tetouan (1859–1860) and the following Spanish occupation (1860–1862), both of which are seen as landmarks in Morocco’s pre-colonial loss of independence.

Dazu werden Passagen verschiedener arabischer Quellen analysiert, die sich auf jene als einschneidend für den vor-kolonialen Souveränitätsverlust Marokkos geltenden Ereignisse beziehen.
