At the Margins – by Michael Refalo Public Talk & Book Launch

On Saturday 3 February 2024 at 11:00, Il-Ħaġar Museum will present its first public talk and book launch for this year: At The Margins by Michael Refalo. At the Margins delves into the tragic, the unsavoury, the unusual aspects of Malta’s nineteenth century social history and beyond. As the title implies, the aim is to concentrate on those aspects which have been broadly ignored by historians: those at the margins of the larger picture. It further focuses on particular incidents of the period, ones that study the minutiae of daily life in Malta and Gozo’s peripheries. In so doing, it privileges Gozo, an island rich in a social history that has broadly been submerged and shrouded behind political and religious narratives.

As usual, Entrance is Free. For seating reservations please e-mail
