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).
not the sort of thing that demands an immediate response and good to serve the greater work by adding to the mix.
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.
