Land People Culture conference at Dar al-Kalima Univeristy Palestine

AP's Director of Innovation Erica Giusta recently contributed to the 26th edition of the international 'Land People Culture' conference, in the session titled "Land, people, and material culture under the scope of heritage and archeology", with a brief lecture exploring the built heritage of the Grand Harbour in Malta as a case study of an environment in need of decolonisation.

The conference forms integral part of the university’s established commitment toward assessing various aspects of culture, identity, and art as a mean to social and economic development. Conceived as an interdisciplinary, multi-ethnic and multi-cultural forum, the event provided a great opportunity for exchange and discussion on the importance and the challenges of cultural self-determination in colonial and post-colonial contexts.
