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).

About Nicholas

Associate Professor of Sociology, Environmental Studies, and Science and Technology Studies at Penn State, Nicholas mainly writes about understanding the scientific study of states and, thus, it is namely about state theory. Given his training in sociology and STS, he takes a decidedly STS-oriented approach to state theory and issues of governance.

    • 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.
