• Turning Grape Juice into Wine

    Dr Andrew Camilleri

    I have never been able to go up a flight of steps without needing a moment to catch my breath. One particular year I decided that not only would I get fit but that I would run a half marathon. Going against a sea of naysayers including my own self-doubts ...

  • Riflessjonijiet fuq il-Maltin f’Jum San Valentin

    Għaqda tal-Malti – Università

    Riflessjonijiet fuq identitajiet Maltin (b’naqra mħabba għal Jum San Valentin) Spiss naħsbu fl-identità bħala xi ħaġa immutabbli, fissa sa minn żmien żemżem u daqshekk. B’danakollu, din l-ewwel sentenza diġà tisfida dan il-kunċett t’identità billi tinqeda bi kliem ta’ nisel differenti. Din ix-xhieda ta’ taħlit lingwistiku hi sintomatika ta’ taħlit fl-identità ...

  • “Għid żarbun mhux ‘shosie’”

    Għaqda tal-Malti – Università

    Ikolli nammetti li, anke jekk mhux il-ħin kollu, noqgħod attenta ħafna għal-lingwaġġ użat mit-tfal. Kull kelma li tingħad, hemm storja warajha. Iżda l-mistoqsija li dejjem tkun qed tberren f’moħħi hi, it-tfal huma verament konxji tal-kliem li qed jużaw? Meta nisma’ lil xi tifla tuża kelma flok oħra jew verb ikkonjugat ...

  • Keep Going

    Martina-Anne Attard

    ‘Life is too short.’ I did not believe this until I got chance to participate in an exchange programme at Malmö University. Travelling poses different challenges. Thinking that I have to go back home, whilst knowing the fact that things did not really turn out the way I planned them ...

  • The Beauty of Being Human

    Martina-Anne Attard

    Each one of us has his or her own story that is worth telling. One’s life makes one’s story different from that of others, making it beautiful in various ways even if sometimes it’s quite difficult to bear. These difficulties, in fact, make the story of our life worth telling. ...

  • Time to Grow

    Martina-Anne Attard

    Travelling is a mystery in itself; it is a reality that needs to be experienced in order for it to be understood. Whilst travelling, we are more connected with what is happening around us: with the people, with the country and with its lifestyle. As a result of meeting new individuals and coming across new situations ...

  • Bogħod mill-għajn…

    Benjamin Portelli

    It was summer and I was in Malta between semesters abroad. During term-time, I still favoured live conversations over other means of contact, especially emails, which I found repetitive. So, MSN Messenger was my go-to channel until it went out of fashion. After that, I admit I was a tough ...

  • Dialogue on zuntier: beyond “beliefs”

    Nadia Delicata

    It’s been almost a year since I was invited to enter and participate in this space called zuntier. I accepted the invitation because it promised to allow for “encounter”… indeed for that elusive reality of authentic exchange called “dialogue”. I also believed it was significant that the welcoming space was ...
