About the Guest Speaker:  Debbie Epstein is Professor of Cultural Studies in Education at the University of Roehampton. Born in South Africa, she moved to the UK in 1962. After graduating from Sussex University, she became a school teacher, beginning her PhD after 20 years in this profession. She has always been interested in structures and cultures of dominance and (in) equality, asking what are the ways in which the dominant is held in place. Her doctoral studies concerned whiteness and antiracism in school, published as Changing Classroom Cultures: anti-racism, politics and schools (1993). Since her PhD, most of her work has been about sexuality and gender in educational institutions, and also in popular culture. Her books include Schooling Sexualities (1998, with Richard Johnson), Silenced Sexualities in Schools and Universities (2003, with Sarah O’Flynn and David Telford) and Gender Equality: South African Schools during the HIV and AIDS Epidemic (2009, with Robert Morrell, Elaine Unterhalter, Relebohile Moletsane and Deevia Bhana). She is currently in the final stages of an international longitudinal project, Elite Schools in Globalizing Circumstances: A Multi-sited Ethnography, with Jane Kenway (Monash), Johannah Faye (Monash), Fazal Rizvi (Melbourne), Cameron McCarthy (Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) and Aaron Koh (National Institute of Education, Singapore) and is developing a bid to study self-harm among young people (aged 14-18). She is also committed to completing a book with Deborah Lynn Steinberg on Extremities: cruelty realism in popular culture (working title).

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.
