Mouad Faitour

Blurred image of the arch used as background for stylistic purposes.

Mouad Faitour is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Religion at the University of Georgia, whose area of interest is related to issues in Islamic thought. His research project focalizes on the institutionalization of the religious narrative in post-Casablanca bombing attacks on May 16, 2003, and how the Moroccan government reacted to such aggressions. His work is centered on the reforms that were launched in 2004 as a response to the radical discourse in Islamic thought in a nation--Morocco--that has an Islamic tradition going back over fourteen hundred years. 

Mouad was a Fulbright (FLTA) scholar. In 2016, he was admitted to teaching Arabic at the University of Georgia.

Currently, Mouad is an instructor of Arabic. In Fall 2022, he is teaching ARAB 1001 and ARAB 2003. In Spring 2023 he is teaching ARAB 2004.
