   schema:description "Between 1963 and 1986, eminent American anthropologists Clifford and Hildred Geertz -- together and alone -- conducted ethnographic fieldwork for varying periods in Sefrou, a town situated in north-central Morocco, south of Fez. This book considers Geertzʹs contributions to sociocultural theory and symbolic anthropology. Clifford Geertz made an immense impact on the American academy: his interpretative and symbolic approaches reoriented anthropology analytically away from classic social science presuppositions, while his publications profoundly influenced both North American and Maghribi researchers alike. After his death at the age of 80 on October 30, 2006, scholars from local, national, and international universities gathered at the University of California, Los Angeles, to analyze his contributions to sociocultural theory and symbolic anthropology in relation to Islam; ideas of the sacred; Moroccoʹs cityscapes (notably Sefrouʹs bazaar or suq); colonialism and post-independence economic development; gender, and political structures at the household and village levels."@en ;
