From Wlodek Rabinowicz:

Dear Colleagues,

We urgently need your help. The Department of Philosophy in Lund, which is located in Kungshuset – a beautiful 16th century house in the centre of the town which originally was home to the University as a whole – is now on its way to being relocated. In the Spring of 2014, we are supposed to move to a new building, together with other departments in the Joint Faculty of Humanities and Theology. Judging by past experience, the next step after the relocation might well be an administrative merger of the different departments into a huge megadepartment. Such mergers have taken place at other universities and at our university as well.
