Écrire aujourd'hui à Rabat et à Casablanca : Témoigner et "laisser trace"

Abstract : In 1999, the publishing house Tarik was founded in the specific context when men and women between 18 and 65 years of age, mostly living in Rabat and Casablanca, started to write their life stories. Tarik house was not an exception. Before Tarik, between the mid-eighties and late nineties, a number of publishing houses were founded, including, among others, Le Fennec and Ediff Marsam. Some forty publishing operations were founded over a period which coincided with a remarkable flowering of literary production. This literary effervescence raises several questions: how can one explain this phenomenon? To which writing practices does it refer? Who are those so called «authors»? Was the terminology properly applied? Through which resources were they writing? And what were they writing about? This article analyses the meaning of these practices and their implication for understanding the extent to which these imply a redefinition of the relationship, on the one hand, between society and its recent past, and on the other hand, between society and its popular narrative.
