The Maurchives publishes on a variety of topics of concern to the community:

  • African and African American History & Culture
  • Islamic History, Philosophy, Jurisprudence, Spirituality, Intellectual History
  • Arabic Language, Literature, Pedagogy
  • Librarianship: Information Literacy, Archives, Classification of Knowledge
  • Black Consciousness, Afrocentrism, Pan-Africanism, Black Nationalism, Black Radicalism, Social Activism
  • History of the U.S. & Africa
  • Egyptology, Ancient Mystery Schools & Religious Philosophies of the Ancient World
  • Educational Philosophy in Islam, the West, and Ancient World

The Maurchives was founded in 2016 as a blog for a graduate course in Archival science. It has since developed into a site for intellectual reflection, frequented by those who quest for knowledge that resonates, elevates, and liberates.
