Lessons from the life of Bro Louis Camilleri F.S.C. - A Lasallian spirit

Lessons from the life of Bro Louis - a Lasallian spirit

Lessons from the life of Bro Louis Camilleri F.S.C. - a Lasallian spirit is the eleventh talk of the APS talks series, which will be presented by Prof. Charles Briffa on 23 January 2020 at APS Centre, Triq it-Torri, Birkirkara (Swatar).

The mental prayers written by Br Louis Camilleri F.S.C.  (1923-2011), Servant of God, reveal a contemporary mind style that includes an awareness to reality in the service of education. Within this context, the concept of education is interpreted as a worthwhile mission with normative implications because it is mainly based on the universal principle of learner-centredness. The writings of Br Louis (endowed with a beautiful mind) are a means of communication with his target audience, who may be defined as all those who are interested in providing a sound and vigorous education to our young people.

Prof. Charles Briffa

Prof. Charles Briffa lectures, at post-graduate level, on the theory and practice of translation for the Masters in Translation with the Department of Translation (Faculty of Arts) and on the history of the Maltese novel with the Institute of Maltese Studies at the University of Malta. For twenty-one years he lectured on Maltese Literature with the Department of Maltese (University of Malta); for fifteen years he was the Principal Subject Area Officer (Arts) with the Matsec Board of Examinations; and since 1983 he has been involved in broadcasting literary and linguistic programmes on the radio and on television. He has attended numerous international conferences on literature, language, translation issues, and assessment and in most cases he has presented papers.

He is a member of the Poetics and Linguistics Association (UK) and of the Association of Literary Scholars and Critics (Boston). He was the President of the Akkademja tal-Malti (2000-2004) and from 2005-2008 a member of the National Council for the Maltese Language (NCML). From 2011 to the present he has been a member of the sub-committee on terminology for the NCML. And since 2018 he has been a member of the Revised Maltese Standard Committee of the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority (MCCAA).

He has translated a lot of works and is a literary critic. He wrote extensively on the stylistic qualities of Maltese literary prose works and on the theory of translation. Among his interests he has cultural linguistics. His publications include a wide range of studies on language, translation, and literature. Briffa started his teaching career with the De La Salle Brothers and he has a long standing association with the Maltese Brothers. Consequently, when Br Louis Camilleri FSC (1923-2011) – whom he knew personally – was declared Servant of God, Briffa was commissioned to write the biography of the pious Brother.
