Dr. Mohammed Errihani   [ August, 2010 ]
Dr. Mohammed Errihani

Dr. Mohammed Errihani was born and raised in Fez.  He holds a Bachelorís degree and a diplome des Etudes Approfondies (DEA) in English Literature from the University of Fez, a Masterís degree in Applied Linguistics and a Ph.D. in English Language and Rhetoric from the University of Illinois at Chicago.  He is currently director of the ESL program and professor of linguistics at Purdue University Calumet.

 

Prior to Purdue, Si Mohammed taught at Al-Akhawayn University for two years (1996-1998) and again for two semesters in 2006.  He also spent over a decade at the University of Illinois at Chicago, both as a student and faculty. 

 

Si Mohammed has presented at conferences, researched, written, and published on rhetoric, language policy, and the Berber Cultural Movement in Morocco.  His book on Language Policy in Morocco: Implications of recognizing and teaching Berber has recently been published.  This work represents the first attempt at examining the policy that called for the teaching of Berber to all Moroccan children, regardless of their ethnic and linguistic background.  The book is available at amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Borders, etc.

 

In his spare time, Si Mohammed enjoys running (he has run three Chicago marathons), playing soccer, reading, listening to a good joke, and socializing with family and friends.  He also enjoys traveling, especially in Morocco, which he visits at least once a year.  He lives in the Chicago area, where he has lived since the early 90s, but Fez, Ifrane, Rabat, and Tangier remain the cities he is most passionate about, and Moroccans everywhere remain his most adored people.
