Director's Visit to Bangladesh

Professor W.R. Genilo (Dean of the Social Sciences at the University of Liberal Arts in Dhaka) with SASNET Director Ted Svensson in November 2022.

Earlier this month, SASNET Director Ted Svensson visited Bangladesh where he met colleagues to discuss future joint initiatives.

In the meetings, Svensson also discussed the possibility of deepening and expanding on existing ties between Lund University and partner institutions in the country.

One of these meetings took place at the University of Liberal Arts (ULAB) in Dhaka, where he had very productive meetings with the Vice Chancellor Professor Imran Rahman, the Dean of the School of Social Science, Professor Jude W.R. Genilo, and the Director of ULAB's new Center for South Asian Studies, Associate Professor Sudeep Chakravarti.

I was truly impressed by the facilities and quality of research at ULAB in general and at the Department of Media Studies and Journalism in particular, Svensson says. 

Svensson will return to Bangladesh in the spring of 2023 with the ambition to concretise the plans regarding collaboration that were initiated during his recent visit.
