Off the Beaten Track: Summer School for Anthropologist in Gozo
Off the Beaten Track: Summer School for Anthropologist in Gozo (one of the three inhabited islands of the Maltese Archipelago in the heart of the Mediterranean)
The program offers a unique opportunity to acquire some ‘in the field’ experience. The islands present a balance of past and present: rural Mediterranean traditions intersect with foreign influence in small fishing villages. At the crossroads of maritime routes between Europe, Africa and Asia, Malta has always been strategically important. Many cultures have contributed to Maltese and Gozitan culture. Foreign influences can be seen for example in the Maltese language- a fusion of Arabic, Italian and six more languages.
