About the Speaker: Susan F. Hirsch is a Professor in the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University in the United States, where she specializes in legal anthropology. Based on ethnographic research conducted in Kenya, Tanzania, and the United States, her publications focus on law as a response to conflicts that range from terrorism and atrocity to social issues (e.g., environment or domestic violence) to interpersonal relationships. Among her several books is In the Moment of Greatest Calamity: Terrorism, Grief, and a Victim’s Quest for Justice, which is based on her experiences surviving a terror attack. Hirsch’s latest research examines family law, religious diversity, and rule of law in Malta and several other nations. In 2015-16 she was a Fulbright Lecturer in the Law Faculty of the University of Malta, where she is also affiliated with the Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies and the Department of Anthropological Sciences.

Discover: The Department of Gender Studies
Gender Issues are relevant to all of society, and all areas of academia.  The University of Malta recognised this in the setting up of the Faculty for Social Wellbeing (July 2012), clearly indicating that a Department of Gender Studies would form part of this Faculty. The Department was eventually established by Council in November 2013.

Bachelor in Social Wellbeing Studies (Honours)
The concept behind this degree is that students are free to “design” their own undergraduate programme by registering for a number of elective study-units (timetable permitting) on offer by the various departments within the Faculty for Social Wellbeing. These would be study-units which they consider most suitable for their academic interest and career plans alongside a number of compulsory core units.
