She inherited the Faculty of Humanities when her predecessor quit. With her one hand she has to restore trust within the faculty. With the other she has to cut 300 student places. What on earth does the dean Kirsten Busch Nielsen actually intend to do?
Kevin Olesen went into student politics during the great blockade of 2019. On most issues, he agrees with Denmark’s Liberal Party, but on the Humanities Student Council he finds common ground with anarchists and Marxists.
The merging of courses which set off the protests is not mentioned explicitly in the new target plan. However, according to the associate dean, this does not exclude the use of mergers in the future.
Incumbent humanities dean Jesper Kallestrup will be »relieved of his duties« by the end of May. Kirsten Busch Nielsen from the Faculty of Theology is to be in charge of setting up a completely new management team for the humanities.
After just two years on the job as dean of a hard-hit-by-budget-cuts Faculty of Humanities at the University of Copenhagen, Jesper Kallestrup is leaving his post to become a professor in Scotland. According to the Rector of the University of Copenhagen, Kallestrup has »attempted to discuss« the difficult choices that the faculty faces.
1st August and Kallestrup will take over control of a faculty that has been troubled in recent years.
