MDH-researcher Eva Lindell has been studying the picture the mass media conjure up of the labour market of the future. It is a picture characterised by gender stereotyped occupational roles, a constant bustle for increased productivity and a telling silence about what the consequences are of a gender-divided labour market. Her alternative is to reverse the perspective: “Men, work part-time”.
In May last year a new procurement process started to find the company that is to build the new Eskilstuna campus and to ensure that there is a landlord when the building is ready. The procurement has now been completed and the University Board has decided to accept the tender of Serneke Bygg AB.
On account of Paul Pettersson’s appointment as the new Acting Vice-Chancellor, the University Board is also appointing a new Acting Pro-Vice-Chancellor. At an extra Board meeting on 28 January it was decided that Peter Gustafsson is to become the Acting Pro-Vice-Chancellor from 1 February.
