Guide and Tour Leader: Dr. Susan Davis
Susan Schaefer Davis, Ph.D., has been captivated by Morocco since she was a Peace Corps Volunteer there in the 1960s. Her work and research with traditional women led her to a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Michigan and post-doctoral work at Harvard. Susan has taught or held research positions at Haverford College, Rutgers University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Al Akhawayn University, Morocco. In addition to consulting with NGOs regarding gender roles in Morocco, she leads cultural and textile tours.
