Holiday greetings and changes for 2019

It has been a full fall semester at the Centre with many guest lectures and events. At the same time we have been busy with preparing for our organisational move from the University Specialised Centres (USV) to the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology. There we will become the third section of the Department of History which apart from the section of history also has the section of human rights. As a result of this organisational change the Asia Library will become the third library at the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology.

However, most things will remain the same. The Centre continues to have an interdisciplinary focus and our Master Programme will remain a master in social sciences. The Centre and the Asia Library will also remain in the same location. The organizational move comes with some new possibilities as we will be able to develop undergraduate courses as well as a Ph.D. programme.

We are launching a photo contest for students at Lund University studying in or visiting Asia with deadline 15 March. It  will result in an exhibition at the Centre with a planned opening on 8 April.

In short we look forward to an exciting new year and wish you welcome back in January!
