Biography of Jane Fatima Casewit

Jane Fatima Casewit is a writer, translator, and educator who lives in Morocco. She has a background in linguistics and education and completed her undergraduate and graduate work in France and the United Kingdom. After many years of teaching, translating and working on a rural girls' education project in Morocco, she is now part of the USAID/Morocco education team.

Mrs. Casewit's interests focus on comparative religion and traditionalist studies, particularly in the area of West African Islam and Sufism. She has published several articles on gender in the light of tradition, including "Islamic Cosmological Concepts of Femininity," which can be found in The Betrayal of Tradition: Essays on the Spiritual Crisis of Modernity, edited by Kenneth (Harry) Oldmeadow.

Mrs. Casewit also translated the French classic The Life and Teachings of Tierno Bokar by Amadou Hampaté Bâ for the World Wisdom edition, A Spirit of Tolerance: The Inspiring Life of Tierno Bokar. She had the privilege of visiting the home and family of Tierno Bokar in Bandiagara, as well as the mosque, which has not changed since Tierno Bokar's time. She also met the last living talibé (student) of Tierno Bokar and the former's family who perpetuate the nobility and gnosis of the Tijani way in West Africa today. Mrs. Casewit lives with her husband and four children in Rabat, Morocco.
