South Asia related activities
From the academic year 2011/12, the department is involved in a Linnaeus Palme exchange programme with the Faculty of Architecture at Moratuwa University, Sri Lanka. Karin Grundström is coordinating the project on the Swedish side.
More information about current South Asia related Linnaeus Palme projects.
In September-October 2011, two faculty members from Moratuwa University visited Malmö, Professor Sevinarate Mahanama, Dean, Faculty of Architecture; and Professor Jagath Munasinghe, Head, Division of Urban and Rural Planning, Moratuwa University, and lectured for the students.
Their visit was documented at Malmö University web site. See an article where the guests tell about their impressions from Malmö (in Swedish only)
The collaboration project is focusing only on an exchange of teachers, not students, and the next phase consists of a visit to Moratuwa in the spring 2012 by Karin Grundström and one of her colleagues within the department, Associate Professor Lina Olsson.
The project has received continued funding for the period 2012-13 with SEK 100 426. More information about the South Asia related Linnaeus Palme projects for 2012-13.
