4 - 6 days availability
Ambivalent Europeans examines the implications of living on the fringes of Europe. In Malta, public debate is dominated by the question of Europe, both at a policy level - whether or not to join the EU - and at the level of national identity - whether or not the Maltese are 'European'. Jon Mitchell identifies a profound ambivalence towards Europe, and also more broadly to the key processes of 'modernisation'. He traces this tendency through a number of key areas of social life - gender, the family, community, politics, religion and ritual.
1. Malta on the Margins of Europe: A History of Ambivalence 2. Valletta: Glory, Decline, Rehabilitation 3. Gendered Lives: Women and Men in Malta 4. Respectability and Consumption 5. Nostalgia and Modernisation 6. All Politicians are Bastards 7. 'Because We're Pawlini, We're Maltese': A Contested Commemoration 8. Viva San Pawl!
