NEXT SCHEDULED HUMS ACTIVITIES


HUMS SYMPOSIUM - The Reformation: impacts and consequences : Wednesday 10th May 2017

 

  •  Wednesday 10 May 2017 at 6pm, at the UM Valletta Campus.  
Programme: The Reformation was a critical turning point in European history, and its often turbulent effects shook most spheres of human activity.  Martin Luther has one of the highest profiles in the history of the Reformation, and 500 years ago this Augustinian friar conveyed his protest by nailing 95 theses to the door of the Castle Church at Wittenberg.


The Humanities, Medicine and Science Programme (HUMS) is commemorating this event by a Symposium on Wednesday 10 May 2017 at 6pm, at the UM Valletta Campus.  Professor Dominic Fenech and the Rev Professor Salvino Caruana will give keynote presentations, and will be followed by a multidisciplinary panel discussion chaired by Professor Godfrey Baldacchino.  The members of the panel will be Dr Philip von Brockdorff, Dr Petra Caruana Dingli, Dr Gillian Martin, Professor Charles Sammut and Professor Keith Sciberras.  The Coordinator for HUMS, Professor Joseph Cacciottolo will introduce the Symposium, which has the support of the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Theology, the Augustinian Institute, and the Malta University Historical Society.
