  • Reminder: Soup Lunch at Graduate School

Autumn has revealed itself and winter is just around the corner. If this is your first winter in Scandinavia, you may be surprised at some of the changes around and within you. And even if you’ve been living here all your life, you may still be grappling with some of those murky feelings that can accompany the imminent cold darkness.  We therefore invite you to come join us for some vegetarian soup and salad, also a representative from Student Health and the Student Chaplain will be there to talk about their work and the ways they can support you. This invitation goes out to several international master’s programmes at the faculty, and we hope you will take this opportunity to come in from the cold, warm up your bellies, and meet some of your fellow students while learning about some of the support that is here.

 

Date: November 10 ,2015

Time: 13:00-15:00

Location: Student Lounge in Gamla Kirurgen (House R).

  • Debate in Lund/ Africa’s resources

The outside world has its eye increasingly set on Africa. Farming lands and new discoveries of oil, gas and minerals have made the continent interesting again – not only for former colonial powers and the United States but also China and India. Under the motto “trade not aid”, Africa’s poor are to be lifted by trade rather than aid. Meanwhile, history shows that rich natural resources easily become a curse. Instead of creating jobs, better education and healthcare, large export revenues often lead to corruption, conflict and to countries becoming dependent on raw materials. Who are the winners and who are the losers in the new scramble for Africa’s resources? Who ensures that the fortunes will benefit the citizens themselves, and what is required for a broad community development?

“Habib(t)iQ is driven by Swedish LGBTQI Initiative – Syd (SQI-Syd). The project examines sexuality, culture and identity in Middle East and Sweden. Considering that identity is fluid and consists of different layers, these layers shape our lives, struggles, culture, religion, ethnicity and legal status. These layers sometimes intersect and sometimes conflict and that is why we are trying to document some of these intersections and conflicts.”
