Rationalizing Cooperation: Moroccan Craft, Politics, and Education
Nicholas, Claire
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v49 n2 p210-223 Jun 2018
State attempts to rationalize Moroccan craft education reflect the ambivalent status of traditional knowledge in a modern economy. Female artisans, recently organized as a cooperative, navigate this ambivalence in a weaving "theory" class and in their "occupation" of the cooperative structure itself. During performances of learning and cooperation, weavers fulfill the terms of the state's policies and their roles as "economic citizens," while accomplishing local modes of belonging and the management of social relations.
