Lisa McLean (Faculty Research and Graduate Studies Bulletin) writes:
Professor Sue Dockett, RIPPLE and the School of Education was recently recognised as a Visiting Professor at Mälardalen University, Västerås, Sweden. Sue's recognition was in honour of Alva Myrdal, who was a Swedish sociologist and politician who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1982 and was a driving force in the creation of the Swedish welfare state.
Professor Bob Perry, RIPPLE and the School of Education, was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the same institution, Mälardalen University, for his lifetime research achievements and contribution of his joint research work with colleagues from Mälardalen. As is the Scandinavian way, Bob received a top hat and a gold ring.
