We are glad to share a new initiative, being organised by Professor Emanuel Buttigieg and myself from the University of Malta, and Dr Daniel Gullo from HMML (Malta Study Center): The early modern Hospitallers online talks series.
It's been evident to us for some time that while scholars working on the medieval military-religious orders (including the Hospitallers) are well organised and connected, those working on the early modern (and later) periods are still dispersed. Our hope is that this online series of talks might help foster a closer collaboration and stimulate multidisciplinary discussions, covering broad topics and bringing together a variety of specialists. At the same time, our goal is to create awareness of all the Hospitaller archival collections being digitised by the Malta Study Center and available online for free in the platform vHMML.org.
We would like to invite you to the first seminar on Monday 16th May 2022 at 6.30 pm (Malta time) which will serve as an introduction to the series, with short interventions by myself and Professor Buttigieg, and a talk by Dr Gullo. The second one will be held on the 16th of June 2022 at 7pm on the theme of Venice, Malta, and the Ottomans. The speakers will be Professor Victor Mallia-Milanes, Professor Giancarlo Casale, and Liam Gauci.
Each seminar will include 20-mins presentations and a discussion, focusing in particular on historiography, methodology and sources.
The participation is free of charge but registration is required. Please fill in this form to receive the Zoom link: https://forms.gle/eyLFguqHmbemFCT98
