Master of Arts in ‘Literary Tradition and Popular Culture’


The Faculty of Arts is proud to announce the launching of an interdepartmental taught Master of Arts  in ‘Literary Tradition and Popular Culture,’ a full-time day programme which will run over 3 semesters and will start in October 2012. The first two semesters will consist of a taught component comprising six 10-ECTS credits units. During the third semester students will be required to write a dissertation under supervision. It is possible for full-time students to transfer to part-time study while they are writing their dissertation.

The entire programme will be taught in English and will also be offered on a part-time basis.

Popular culture in its increasingly varied contemporary manifestations draws immensely on literary tradition. The programme will seek to explore the complex engagement of these two conceptual categories with one another as well as their shared areas of theory and critique. In the process, a series of canonical and popular works will be studied as they are viewed and rewritten from several angles of interpretation, including non-traditional ones.

Seven different departments of the Faculty of Arts will offer lectures and seminars on the following key areas, among others: comparative literature, cultural theory, theory of literature, film and the literary canon, Biblical literature, modernist literature, postmodernist literature, the literature of the avant-garde, the aesthetics of decline, representations of the Mediterranean, the translation of canonical and popular texts.

The intent of this cutting-edge programme is to provide students with a unique opportunity to engage in a dialogical exchange on a vast array of comparative issues and to build a dynamic postgraduate community.

The course is not restricted to graduates of language and literature but welcomes Honours graduates (Second Class or better) as well as all those holding an Ordinary degree at Category II or better. Indeed it is designed to address the interests of students from different academic backgrounds.

A programme description and further details on admission requirements may be found at: http://www.um.edu.mt/arts/overview/PMALTCFTT2-2012-3-O

Reaction to Mark Anthony Falzon’s article in the Times of Malta on the 11th September 2011


The Arts Students’ Association believes that the students’ organisations work is being undermined. With reference to Mark Anthony Falzon’s article entitled ‘We shall nanny them to the beaches’ published in the Times of Malta on the 11th September 2011, is, a direct attack on the Malta Medical Students’ Association (MMSA). Dr. Mark Anthony Falzon, as a head of department coming from the Faculty of Arts should know better. Students’ organisations can be criticised, however, offering your weekly occasion opinion just attacking a student organisation is not the way to go. Student organisations carry their particular duties towards student life and must be appreciated with the limited resources each organisation has.

AEGEE, MUSC, ASA, TSA, ESO, Y4TE, UMGS, GhSK, LOOP and Manicpeople have the pleasure of inviting you to our End of Exams BBQ and Beach Party at the reclusive Gnejna Bay, in order to celebrate the kick-off to the season we all enjoy!

So do leave your exam-blues at home and treat yourselves to fun and sun, followed by a night of partying (our DJs will make sure you’re entertained with a perfect blend of party beats fit for Summer 2011) and relaxing on the Gnejna sands, whilst helping yourselves to an OPEN BAR (with regards to WINE and BEER). To satisfy all your appetites, and to keep you from drinking on an empty stomach, you will be able to help yourselves to a generous mixed grill BBQ.

The event starts at 14:30. Music will be toned down at 23:00, but we do invite you to stay on for the chill out that will follow the party. And just because we really do want you to enjoy the start to summer relaxation, we’ll be serving cold Sangria and Fruit Kebabs!
