Humanities to hold public meeting on education and research cuts

Humanities Council at the University of Copenhagen calls on all humanities students and staff to attend

Dean Ulf Hedetoft will talk about how the cuts are going to hit the University of Copenhagen and more specifically the Faculty of Humanities. Student Council chairman Alexander Thorvaldsen and chairman of the Humanities Council Laura Bech Hansen will give a talk as well.

The meeting will be Tuesday at 17:15 and is about the Danish “government budget proposal to cut DKK 3.3 billion from our education programmes and DKK 1.4 bn from research,” according to the Humanities Council Facebook page.

On the same page Laura Bech Hansen, who is also a student of French and Danish, is putting on an angry face.

The sign says: I am coming to the meeting. Are you?

“She is angry over the way they again and again choose to cut back on our education programmes without taking into account that quality costs money,” she is quoted.
