Sociology of Southern Europe - Call for abstracts

Picture by Mariella Debono

Southern Europe, so often seen as the periphery of Northern Europe has historically played a key role in world history. The Mediterranean Sea belongs to Europe as much as it does to Africa and Asia. Trade, civilisations, ideas, cultures and peoples have long crossed its boundaries freely and indiscriminately. 

The Malta Sociological Association (MSA) is organizing a one-day conference on the Sociology of Southern Europe on Saturday 18 November 2017. 

MSA is inviting submission of abstracts relevant to the conference theme. Papers may fall under different sociological themes and may deal with specific Southern European societies or adopt a comparative approach.

To propose a paper, please send a brief abstract (150-300 words) to by not later than 30 June 2017.

Participation fee: MSA members 20 Euro, non-members 30 Euro. Participation also includes a coffee break.
To join MSA please find details at

The world always seems to be in a mess anyway. So why do we need sociology? Maybe to try and sort it out...

Monday 13 March 5pm-8pm
Multipurpose Boardroom, Ground Floor, Ministry for Education, Great Siege Road, Floriana
