Abdelkebir Khatibi

Abdelkebir Khatibi (b. 1938, El Jadida, Morocco) is a Moroccan literary critic, and novelist. He is a member of the young generation of the 1960s that challenged the social and political norms upon which the countries of the Maghrib were being built.

He pursued his sociology degree at the Sorbonne publishing his doctoral dissertation, Le Roman maghrébin (The Maghribian Novel) in 1968. His dissertation, a study of the novel, raised the question of how a novelist could avoid propagandizing in the context of a postrevolutionary society.
