Malta is a “multilingual” island with a rich history of migration from all corners of the Mediterranean. This trip focuses on questions about migration, culture, religion and language and the interface between these and sociopolitical issues. Through meetings with academics and cultural actors and visits to ethnic neighborhoods, you will engage in conversations about these questions and learn about the rich history and the current situation on the island where Maltese, English and other languages are spoken.

Through visits to the St Elmo National War Museum and cultural sites, such as St John’s Co-Cathedral and the beautiful old cities of Rabat and Mdina, you will understand ongoing struggles of migration and occupation.

Led by Professors Rebekah Rast and Ziad Majed
