Tangier is the city where Africa and Europe meet. Looking across the Straits of Gibraltar to Spain, for centuries it has been Morocco's gateway to the wider world as well as an alluring entry point for foreign adventurers, artists, writers, and tourists. In this historical lecture of Tangier for travelers, we will explore the stories and sites of Morocco's international city, from classical mythology to the present day.

From Hercules and the great medieval traveler Ibn Battuta to the Beat writers of the 1950s and the Rolling Stones, Tangier's streets have seen a procession of larger-than-life characters. Through their stories, we examine the city's history from its ancient origins to the present day. We will follow Tangier grow from a Roman outpost, through the competition between Europe and Morocco for control and its status as an 'International Zone', to a 21st-century city that sits at the forefront of Morocco's modernization.

Led by an expert on Morocco, travel writer and guidebook author Paul Clammer, this seminar pulls back the veil on one of Morocco's most alluring cities. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of Tangier's unique history and cultural legacies, as well as providing tips for future visits.
