About the Organisers

The Malta Classics Association is a Maltese NGO set up in 2010 by staff and students of the University of Malta’s Department of Classics and Archaeology. The MCA aims to encourage and promote the study of Classics and Sanskrit as well as other related disciplines in Malta and beyond. Over the years, the MCA has pursued these aims by publishing original works and translations of classical texts, publishing an annual academic journal entitled Melita Classica, organising frequent in-person and online public lectures and courses on a variety of topics and at various levels. More information on the Association can be found on the MCA website or by emailing the MCA at [email protected] .

The Department of Classics and Archaeology was itself re-established in 1989 after a brief period of inactivity. Since then, the Department and its many lecturers have trained their students in Classics and Archaeology, and the Department has overseen or collaborated on a number of archaeological digs on Malta and Gozo as well as underwater on the islands’ vicinity. The Department offers courses of study at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels of stud. For more information on the Department of Classics and Archaeology consult the Department’s own webpage.
