Discover University 2014

The Department of Gender Studies is organising a discussion on gender and football.  The discussion will 'kick off' with a documentary entitled Kick Like A Girl.

Kick Like A Girl is the story of what happens when 'The Mighty Cheetahs', an undefeated third grade girls soccer team competes in the boys’ division.  This documentary reveals the reality of the boy-girl issues and what "Kick Like A Girl" really means on and off the playing field The film is narrated by 8 year old Lizzie, a self described soccer girl, who doesn't let juvenile diabetes, elbow blocks or grass stains interfere with her desire to compete.  

After the film there will be a power point presentation by Ms Gabriella Zahra where she will discuss whether gender matters when it comes to allocating resources to the two Maltese national football teams - the male and the female one. Some of the players of the Maltese women's national football team will join us and go through some football moves.

The session will be held as follows:

Sunday 26 October at 1200hrs

Thursday 30 October at 1100hrs

Full details and programme are available on the Discover University website.

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.
