Therefore, one way of proving such a claim is by questioning the image of Morocco and the way the country has been identified from a Western perspective based on a body of produced knowledge, particularly travel narratives, and thus the subject of this essay.…

Diversity, presented as propaganda, depicts the exoticism of differences in culture (Fig 1). Sensitivity, tolerance and cultural awareness training contains the political correctness needed to enforce the propaganda of multiculturalism.

Aided by theatrical elements and her role, it was clear the audience could…
