    I’ve belatedly caught up with this. Unbelievable. Your sketch of the possible explanations sounds entirely plausible, and each is equally depressing. As for the English-only names, this is perhaps 300 years premature.

    Now, where’s the Danish People’s Party when you need them 🙂

    I notice that the institutes in the other three faculties have Danish names, with the exception of bioscience and geoscience, where biovidenskab and geovidenskab should have been used instead.

    But all four facilities have only English names. The choice of the word Arts instead of Humanities seems especially unfortunate. I would not be surprised if many people will think that the Faculty of Arts is mostly interested in kunst, and not humaniora more generally.
