Il_Blues u Kotba Strambi
Il-Blues u Kotba Strambi is a journey of exploration over thirteen programmes of two eclectic pleasures - the blues and unusual books that perhaps even due to their uniqueness left an impact on the imagination of their readers. Presented by author Aleks Farrugia, with occasional guests joining him in our studios at Campus FM, Il-Blues u Kotba Strambi is a weekly winding-down evening encounter with the history of the blues and thirteen centuries of books - ranging from a compendium of medieval monsters from the ninth century to the intriguingly bizarre novel of a Nazi becoming a Jew; a thirteenth-century Islamic encyclopedia to Andrea Camilleri’s pseudo-historical documents first published after his death. Il-Blues u Kotba Strambi is a thirty-minute pill of culture and curiosity; imagination and fact; the funny, the bizarre and something more!
 
Radju Ritwali
Our community rituals remind us that we are part of a long history woven through the ages.  It is through actions and symbolism these rituals help us understand the world around us and ourselves. In this second series, we will look at the elements that shape these rituals such as numbers, colours and the environment.  What is the role of the sun and moon in rituals? Why are certain numbers used more than others? It is through discussions, readings, as well as musical reflections we will keep investigating our rituals. The second series will once again feature Joseph Galea along with Alex Vella Gregory and Giuliana Barbaro-Sant. Each programme will feature a special guest to discuss these rituals in more depth.
 
Xi Tfisser Li Tkun Bniedem?
What does it mean to be human? Throughout history, we have always asked this fundamental question about ourselves. From the philosophers to the historians, the scientists to the theologians, the sociologists to the artists, humans strive to understand the different facets that make them what they are and what they can become. In this programme, we will conduct conversations with academics and researchers from various disciplines that engage with this question in their research and practice. We will look at how researchers from different areas of study extend and use theoretical and philosophical ideas in their attempt to understand the complexity of being human. We will ask questions that create an interdisciplinary dialogue in order to explore the discourses and methods that shed light on the fundamental question of what it means to be human. This programme is co-produced by the Department of Education Studies and the Department of Philosophy at the University of Malta.
