Dr Neb Kujundzic, dean of Arts and Professor of Philosophy at the University of Prince Edward Island, Canada, delivered an engaging guest lecture on the relationship between humanity, work and technology, particularly robotics, and its implications for education, to the Department of Philosophy at the University of Malta. 

Dr Kujundzic's visit is the latest of a long series of "island-to-island" exchanges between UPEI and UM, which started off with an invitation extended to (now UM pro-rector and professor) Godfrey Baldacchino to visit UPEI back in 1992.

UPEI Professor of Religious Studies, Robert Dennis, will visit Malta and the University next month.

Professor Baldacchino is UNESCO co-Chair in Island Studies and Sustainability at UPEI.
