John Urry has passed-away



John Urry, “an influential scholar who has shaped several fields of sociology, died suddenly, 18th March.”

There are some touching and interesting testimonials and memorials with his passing. I was always in awe of the scope of Urry as a thinker (so much so that, when asked, I felt almost professionally obligated to review one of his recent books).

    • Thanks for the posts to progressiveG — I’ve had my head in the sand with work lately, and can’t believe it took me a few days to see/notice this loss to the community.
